Francine Porad


Dear Francine,

We "met" as poet and editor and became "roomies" at the 1993 Haiku North America conference at Livermore CA, remember? You truly are one of the most genuine, talented and self-assured artists I know, yet you never pretend to be more than "one of us." You'll recognize this excerpt from a renku--our first--between two poets learning the computer and reaching across a continent for support, company and understanding.

Keep on keeping on, dear Francine! Love ya, Yvonne Hardenbrook
