Nick Virgilio Writers House Poetry: Volume 1

For the first volume of poetry from the Nick Virgilio Writers House, we have chosen to include the Japanese poetic forms: haiku, senryu, and tanka. As Nick once put it, “A haiku is a record of emotion which somehow links human nature to all nature through keenly perceived experience.”
