The hay(na)ku -- it's always been about Toi, not Moi.

To wit, I'm swamped but could not turn down the opportunity to create an imprint "Hay(na)ku for Haiti" that would be a fundraiser for Haiti relief. Thanks to Dan Waber's chapbook-publishing group for the opportunity.

More deets later on this project but, I just had to pause to relish how I love projects like these -- they are real, not simply metaphorical, manifestations of how Poetry Feeds the World. Engagements like this are made possible because the Word matters.

And because the Word, too, is often Holy.
