    Kia ora Grant Hackett

    Back in 2017 Johannes S. H. Bjerg told me about an email exhange that he had with you about "having more than one dimension - one
    layer of meaning, additional threads of poetry, more poems in one poem -in a single haiku (or haiku based poem) or poem-unit".

    This exchange lead to the birth of haiku in parallel, a form that I work in mainly these days.

    I look forward to reading your interwoven monostitch poems.

      Greetings, Hansha Teki. Johannes and I talked about dimensional layering in our poetry back in 2012. Johannes really took off with the idea and developed the parallel form. My own explorations felt sterile and I returned to monostich. But a new notion has arisen. With dimension as the focus. I hope to have your comments on it.

      Hello, Rich! Thanks for your warm welcome. The notion of this forum as a sanctuary is immensely appealing. Let me share this from today:

      what color of rose is waiting for my name

      how did moss find its way to the roof of night

      if the moon returns to life :: where will i hide my heart


      All best, Grant
