#Haiku Happenings #4: Charlotte Digregorio announces that Barbara Tate has a new book of #haikai out!
Barbara Tate, a very accomplished writer and author of many genres, has just published “far more than I ever was: haiku, tanka and haibun.” It’s a very attractive, generous, and endearing collection by someone whose work is often featured on this blog, and whose poems appear worldwide.

As all great haiku, tanka, and haibun, Tate’s pieces place you right in the moment. Below are just a few fresh and succinct samples of her inspiring and relatable poems that you’ll come back to again and again:
