A little while ago, I found an invitation to your exhibit called "A Woman's Non-Commemorative Stamp Collection" in Valle Crucis in 1985. I saved it all this time for the female alphabet on the card and because I saw some of your work in Boone and liked it. It's good to know you're still working. Your art is so true.

Linking lines with you is FUN, FUN, FUN and thought-provoking, too. I love the surprise of many of your responses and have enjoyed our fifteen years of collaboration. Your friend, with love, Francine

When I write on WHCmarlenemountain.com, I loosen up. Free of the restrictions of thinking about how many words are on this line or that, my words flow out. And, when I have written in response to marlene's personal links, her homey details about her garden and her wicked humor inspire me, and my words flow out faster than they do in renku meetings, ginkos or at my desk. You're a mighty, moving mountain, marlene! cs

I failed to mention earlier how influential Marlene has been to my poetry. Her concrete haiku (what Marlene calls her "unaloud poems") in the 2nd edition of The Haiku Anthology by Cor van den Heuvel inspired me to take the concrete poetry I had been writing and to apply it as Marlene had to haiku. My first haiku chapbook, Mountain Climbing, was written as a tribute to Marlene. Imagine my sorrow when her "sn wfl k s," "hoot owl," and (my favorite) "peacock" were omitted from the 3rd edition.

I've been writing linked haiku with Marlene since February 1994. Gosh, it's been over 10 years now, hasn't it? She is still one of my favorite writers. We are so different and so alike, so this makes for some unusual poetry, to say the least. Keep tilting at the haiku windmills, Marlene! Just don't fall off your high horse. :) Love, Carlos

For years I laboured under misapprehensions of what haiku was or could be (I believed my underinformed teachers who said it was a "5-7-5-syllable poem"). Then, when I read the second edition of Cor van den Heuvel's The Haiku Anthology, most of the poems confronted my misunderstandings, for nearly all of them were not 5-7-5. Especially Marlene Mountain's -- her work was so different, fresh, and boundary-breaking. Something else was making these poems work. I'm particularly grateful to Marlene for her inimitable poems, many of which were so different from my expectations for haiku that they helped jar me into a deeper apprehension of haiku and helped attract me to join the walk down the haiku path. Here's to Marlene Mountain, a unique pioneer of American haiku.
