too much politics, not enough poetry

Acorn is an independent journal of haiku-in-English founded and edited by AC Missias, whose own haiku were among the first “international haiku” (viz., haiku not written in Japanese) I remember reading:

father’s kimono
fluttering empty
still protects his yard
spring chill —
rounded sparrows cling
to bare branches
far from land
waiting for sunrise
— the creaking of ropes

Subscription is less than USD12/year. I’d happily pay that much for just one good poem.
