Haiku Anak Kucing : “HIGHLY COMMENDED” Award in the 5th H. Gene Murtha Memorial Senryu Contest 2020

Late to know that one haiku from Indonesia has been awarded in the Annual H. Gene Murtha Memorial Senryu Contest this year.  Judges for this contest are  Brent Goodman (the editor of Prune Juice) and Michael Rehling (the editor of Failed Haiku). Surprisingly, we can briefly hear how Michael Rehling reads and speaks about his thought  about the 35 Highly Commended poets who placed in the contest sponsored by Prune Juice Journal and Failed Haiku in Mike Rehling’s video. Honoured being appreciated in such a way. Thank you, Mike!

Haiku Ketumbar : tinywords 19.2

This is my first publication on the notable haiku resources tinywords (ISSN 2157-5010), an international, daily magazine of haiku and micropoetry curated by Kathe Palka and Peter Newton (co-editors) and d. f. tweney the founder of tinywords.

About my work, Alan Summers said : “The phrase is deeply poignant, where we have the adjective ‘old’ partly re-emphasised by the rhyme of ‘old’ and ‘told’ and the suggestion of forgetfulness or denied complete control over his passwords. … The power of juxtaposition, and the abuse of power, or the degradation of memory, either way, powerful work.”

Really grateful for the support and encouragement.
Greetings from Indonesia,
