HAIKU STRINGS-NEW RELEASE
By Nancy Lee Shrader
"Poetic Melodies" takes the familiar Haiku to a new level. Each seventeen syllable haiku is able to stand alone, but when joined with other haikus, they tell a story, a truth, a rant or a tribute. You will find 101 First Place HAIKU STRINGS and six
of these have placed FIRST a second time. Five of the Haiku Strings have been featured in "All Things Girl Magazine" and eight others have received Titled Awards. Other Japanese forms added to this collection are Senryu, Inversed Haiku, and Hay (na) ku.
