Stanford M. Forrester
Former Board Member
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
the scarecrow’s shirt
nicer than mine
April morning the crow too has a song
