A Monk's Fine Robes:
a haiku sequence from Cambodia

A Poetry Chapbook by Terry Ann Carter

Terry Ann Carter is a haiku and tanka poet who travels the world with a small spiral-bound notebook, happy to be alive, here, now!

She was privileged to participate in an international renku (linked haiku) at the Basho Festival in Ueno, Japan, and at the Tenri Cultural Center in New York City. She has organized four Haiku Canada conferences at Carleton University, Ottawa, and chaired the Haiku North America committee for a five-day conference at the Library and Archives, Canada, in Ottawa.

Terry Ann won first prize (for best Canadian poem) in the Vancouver International Cherry Blossom Festival (2007) and has given haiku and small book making workshops across Canada, the U.S., Singapore, China, France. In 2010 she won the Origami Crane Award for Best Poem of the Year sponsored by the Tree Reading Series in Ottawa. The “best poem” included six haiku from this collection. Terry Ann is chair of the Tabitha Foundation (Canada) which supports the work of Tabitha Cambodia.

New publications include Lighting the Global Lantern: A Guide To Writing Haiku and Related Literary Forms, Wintergreen Studios Press, and Now You Know I Can Change My Mind (Hexagram Series), King’s Road Press.
