About & Haiku
& Haiku is the reflective markings of Marc Edwards. In the spirit of haiku, it deals more with nature, but not exclusively. Some of these pieces unfold in the urban and suburban landscapes, but all of them are reflective just the same. 

As for the name "& Haiku?" The name started off as "Poems and Haiku" but brevity trimmed it to "& Haiku" along the way.

About Brief History of Haiku and Senryū
A haiku and senryū are short poems from the Japanese traditions. In the late seventeenth century, poet Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)  took the budding haiku tradition and brought clarity and popularity to it. Some years later, Senryū Kairai (1718-1790) took the form from an identity through nature and put it completely into the human experience. Known as a senryū, its become his namesake.



Traditionally published every Saturday morning; however, there are exceptions.
