Just a brief word to announce that today I learned 
my poem below was awarded the Museum of Haiku Literature
Award by the Haiku Society of America for best poem published in the Autumn 2012 issue of Frogpond. I feel very honored to be chosen! [I tied with another person's poem, so we each are honored!]

Here is the poem (page 27):

new love the up and down of her teabag

Hello, I am still alive and kicking.  :)
I mostly have been pursuing my fine art photography,
which I believe is not too unlike haiku writing at least
in one respect. Each captures moments of experience.
Please check out my fine art photography site and also
a place to purchase products utilizing these photos.

I also have a photography blog (yeah, I know, yet another blog), which many publicizes my various sales. Hey, just window shop, no need
to buy.  :)

Take care and try to stay well!  :D

Stating the obvious, I have been remiss at keeping this blog going. As you may know, my interests have turned back to another love--fine art photography. I say "turned back" because I practiced and taught underwater photography back in the '70s (1970s, I'm not that old!). Check out over 700 of my photos on
my photography pages. Other than the occasional abstracts I have created, most of my photos are not unlike haiku sensibilities. Both can be understood as snapshots freezing some experiential moments. Still, I continue to write haiku and related forms, albeit at a reduced pace. Indeed, I have penned (who uses pens anymore?) a tan renga in the current Frogpond co-authored with one of my writing buddies, Yvonne Cabalona. Here is that haiku sequence:

all day
a scale
on the fisherman's face (w. f. owen)

the delicate hover
of a hummingbird (Yvonne Cabalona)

Finally, I am working on a photo book for later this year probably for iPads only. I will keep you informed.


Take care,
Bill
