Meet the Poet
Dave Read is a Canadian poet living in Calgary. Before discovering micropoetry in 2013, he had been an on again, (mostly) off again writer of verse. The shorter forms, especially tanka and haiku, ignited his imagination and desire to write. He has since been published in many journals, including Modern Haiku, Frogpond, tinywords, A Hundred Gourds, bottle rockets, Atlas Poetica, Skylark, failed haiku, Bones, Bright Stars, Sonic Boom, the other bunny, Prune Juice, hedgerow, Bamboo Hut, Undertow, brass bell, cattails, Under the Basho and others. Dave maintains a blog for his poetry here, and he invites your visit. Read.
