Today, thirty-some postal poetry submissions arrived in one big bundle, forwarded from our old post office address (some sent seven months old, but, warmly welcomed) A fair number of my poets do not use email, and, if they haven't submitted recently, or, a poet read about bear creek somewhere without an updated address - it's all understandable
70% of our poems are sent by postal delivery, and the correct address is: bear creek haiku, p.o. box 596, longmont, co 80502 USA (SASE's are appreciated)
If from another country, email is best: firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or, email@example.com (do include your postal mailing address)
American poets/friends, prefer submitting by email? You know
it's all loverly.

of their favorite poets from
bear creek haiku #134. . .
haiku in Shakespeare
hidden in sonnets baby asleep
who art thou? in a sunbeam:
winds flip pages wrapped in light years
shaking against cold (john mcdonald
yellow leaves lament edinburgh scotland)
the ashes of youth
(anna yin mississauga ontario)
Each morning I arise
roll back the stone of sleep
walk into the light
as if I myself am the source.
