50 Haikus represents the best of American Haiku today. American Haiku is brash, breaking the rules and riding the line between tradition and the American spirit (reaching out, pressing the possibilities of form and voice).
American Haiku has emerged, influencing poetry in the US and everywhere poets are listening. The 50 Haikus journal receives beautiful works of haiku from around the world. Each issue includes hand-selected poems from among the thousands of submissions we receive annually.
Readers will delight in the form and message. Haiku seem to say more than what is possible in just a few syllables, making the form one of the most popular and important elements of poetry today. 50 Haikus is relevant, and an important addition to any library. Reading 50 Haikus is like watching the evolution of poetry unfold, issue after issue. These poems touch readers, and surprise poets.
