I would like to congratulate Robert Epstein for publishing Dreams Wander On: Contemporary Poems of Death Awareness (Modern English Tanka Press, 2011)! It is a lovely anthology!
I am delighted and humbled to report that Robert Epstein included three of my haiku in Dreams Wander On. These were among my first accepted poems! Robert sent me an acceptance email in 2010.
In a personal note to me, Robert wrote:
“6-10-11 Dear Andy, Thank you very much for sharing your big poetic heart in Dreams. You have greatly enriched the book. Best wishes, Robert”
Robert Epstein is an exceptionally talented, generous poet, editor, and person. I am very grateful!
