It has been so long since I've written any haiku. I think I'm just not in an emotional place to handle the calmness of it right now.

that's understandable, but when you change your mind i'm sure there are a lot of people who wouldn't mind reading a sequel to Mouth of a Lover.

Sad to say, but there's a thread on The Haiku Foundation Forum that Notes from the Gean has ceased as a publication. You can read about it here: http://www.thehaikufoundation.org/forum_sm/index.php?topic=3378.0

Julie - thanks for the update, I didn't see anything about that on the Gean website.

That one will definitely be missed. NftG has published many great poems, including some good haiku in the current/last issue from Andy Burkhart and Marion Alice Poirier (especially the one about the rocking chair).
