The Periodic Table of Haiku began as way for me, Ron Sparks, to intoduce
myself to the members of the SciFaiKu Mailing List members.
A veteran member, by moniker 'gK', had stumbled upon a sited called the Periodic Table of Poetry.
Unfortunately, most of the elements were already written to on that site. |
So, on January 29, 2001 I introduced the table to
the members of the List. By Feburary 21, 2001 the list was complete! I was amazed and gratified at not only the overwhelming response,
but also the high-quality haiku that were submitted. The Table of Haiku quickly grew beyond the SciFaiKu mailing list and
well respected amatuer and published authors from across the country joined in and added a haiku or two.
Take a moment and enjoy the poems for each element. If
you really like the poems, email the authors and tell them so!
