Coracle: "Maureen Van Horn began writing haiku for the banner of the second section of the New Hampshire Concord Monitor in 2015. Their rigorous syllabics encapsulate items of current news that might be covered elsewhere in the newspaper with more prosaic and extended narrative. They may capture the banality of events, bordering on an inconsequentiality, in a way that only this form allows."
Birds tweet happily;
Unaware others twitter,
Making much more noise!
