2011 Regional Coordinator

Mark Arvid White

Mark Arvid White
PO Box 1771
Palmer, AK 99645


Mark Arvid White began his adventures with haiku after reading a haiku about a cat sitting in a sunbeam in the pages of the Disney Channel Magazine sometime in 1986. Since then he has had haiku, other poetry, stories, articles, and reviews published in such places as Frogpond, Modern Haiku, Permafrost, Alienskin, Wild Violet, Candelabrum, and many others in the United States and abroad. He is the creator and leopard-in-charge of the Shin Tao Haiku Retreat in the online virtual community of Second Life, and continues to explore, to reveal, and be enlivened by the many worlds around him from his home in Alaska.

cold grey beach—
the oil-soaked cormorant
preens and preens

parade stalled . . .
tying an errant shoelace
the Chinese dragon

inch by inch
into the snake’s mouth
the mouse’s tail
