Established in 1969, Modern Haiku is one of the world’s longest running, most well regarded, English-language haiku journals. Modern Haiku is produced in the USA, so the Summer edition (Volume 48.2) was released recently. It had this to say about Blowing Up Balloons by Vanessa Proctor and Gregory Piko:
A collection of poems on parenthood by two accomplished haikuists. From the first pangs of pregnancy, through infancy, to early years, the poets find meaning in the smallest of events, as well as in the obviously important ones. We were delighted at the breadth of the poems. This collection would make an excellent gift for anyone who has children or is about to embark on that journey.
