Susan Antolin

Susan has a law degree and maintains her membership with the State Bar of California on inactive status while she raises her three children.

Her first individual collection of haiku and tanka, Artichoke Season, was published in 2009. She also has a Web site where she posts haibun and other haiku-related writing on a weekly basis at <www.artichokeseason.wordpress.com>.

Susan Antolin fell in love with modern Japanese short poetry (in particular, Machi Tawara’s collection of tanka, Salad Anniversary) while living in Japan in the late 1980s but did not begin writing her own poems until 2002 when she enrolled in a creative writing workshop.

She serves as vice president of the Haiku Poets of Northern California, coedits the HPNC membership journal Mariposa, edits the HPNC newsletter on an interim basis and began editing the Haiku Society of America newsletter in 2010.



the tablecloth
shaken over the lawn
starry night


and so I agree
not to die before she does—
the sound of crickets


Independence Day
I struggle to free myself
from a wet swimsuit
