Erotic haiku: of Skin on Skin

The meaning of “erotic” varies greatly among the contributors to Erotic Haiku: Of Skin On Skin.
To many, it conjures actual intercourse—foreplay, climax and an array of emotions afterwards. For others, it is linked only tangentially to the sexual act: watching a bee enter a flower, recalling a glance from another or the smell of someone’s hair or skin smooth to the touch or a whisper in one’s ear or the taste of something sweet on a lover’s tongue. Finally, a few see the erotic in terms of humour through wordplay and unexpected juxtapositions. Such a broad spectrum of the erotic guarantees that all readers are sure to find something pleasing

Description

George Swede began as a non-haiku poet pub- lishing in Canadian magazines such as Antigonish Review, Canadian Forum, Grain, Quarry, Tamarack Review and Waves. His interest in haiku began when he was sent a review copy of The Modern Japanese Haiku in 1976. This led to an awareness of a haiku writing sub-culture in North America with which he soon became involved to the extent that, in 1977, he co-founded Haiku Canada with Eric Amann and Betty Drevniok. Swede has published 39 poetry collections, the latest being Helices (Red Moon Press, 2016).

Poet and paper artist, Terry Ann Carter, is the author of five collections of lyric poetry and five chapbooks of haiku. A Crazy Man Thinks He’s Ernest in Paris (Black Moss Press, 2010) was shortlisted for the Archibald Lampman Award; day moon rising was shortlisted for the Acorn-Plantos People’s Poetry Award. She participated in the Basho Festival, Ueno, Japan, and has given haiku and small book making workshops in countries around the world. Carter is an instructor of Japanese literary forms at Royal Roads University, Victoria, founder of KaDo Ottawa (2001) and Haiku Arbutus study group (2014); she is president of Haiku Canada.
