Stanford M. Forrester

Former Board Member
Windsor, Connecticut

Stanford M. Forrester is a past president of the Haiku Society of America and founding editor of bottle rockets: a collection of short verse. Though his work has been published in many journals and anthologies, he is most proud of his inclusion in Haiku in the Everyman’s Library Pocket Poets Series and American Zen: A Gathering of Poets published by Bottom Dog Press.

writing a haiku
in the sand . . .
a wave finishes it

                                                                   autumn colors—
                                                                   the scarecrow’s shirt
                                                                   nicer than mine

April morning    the crow too    has a song
