the road behind, haiku of Mike Dillon


Categories: ,


Mike Dillon is the publisher of community newspapers in Seattle, Washington. He and his wife, parents of two boys, live in Indianola, a small town on the shores of Puget Sound. He has been a regular contributor to Modern Haiku over the past 15 years. the road behind is a collection of 72 haiku, two poems and a haibun, and it is possible to see this as a collection of disparate pieces, but what is even more evident is that it may be seen as a single extended work. The unity of vision and sensibility gradually makes the locale of this road familiar to us, a road we too have traveled, and are happy to travel again in such good company.

after the day
of migrating whales:

                    the last kid picked
                    running his fastest
                    to right field

          the first rain drops
          pock the river’s mouth:
          salmon splash
