Blue Graffiti is a new collection of Dianne Borsenik‘s best haiku/senryu. A careful hand creation, this 34-page chapbook is saddle stitched, uses high quality cotton paper and features cover art by Steven Smith. A feast for both the eyes and mind, Blue Graffiti is available for only $5 US from Crisis Chronicles Press, 420 Cleveland Street, Elyria, Ohio 44035. You may also order via PayPal.
Dianne Borsenik, a former flower child and current redhead, lives with husband James near Elyria, Ohio’s beautiful Cascade Park, where she found the “blue graffiti.” She has had poems and haiku published in a number of journals and anthologies, including Rosebud, Slipstream, Haiku World: An International Poetry Almanac and The Magnetic Poetry Book of Poetry. With poetry partner John Burroughs, she co-produces/co-hosts the Lix & Kix Poetry Extravaganza and Snoetry: A Winter Wordfest series. Find her at http://www.pw.org/content/dianne_borsenik_0.
