Welcome to Episode 9 of the Haiku Pea podcast from www.poetrypea.com. We welcome submissions. I’m delighted to say that our guest Haijin today is Tim Gardiner from the UK. It was hard to choose just which of his haiku to start with, but I chose one that was relevant to the season. I’ll tell you more about him shortly, and read you his haiku which I hope you will enjoy as much as I did. If you go to our website at www.poetrypea.com, you will see that I have now started a page purely for recommended reading. There is an Amazon link that you can click on that will take you directly to a book, you don’t have to use that obviously, but if you do you won’t pay any more for the book than you would’ve done by going directly but I get paid a little bit of commission, which is nice.
