On this site you will find the Haiku-ish submissions in response to the Last Call of Santa Clara County’s First Poet Laureate (2009-2011) Nils Peterson, SJSU professor emeritus of English and a co-founder of Poetry Center San José,

Since the close of Nils Peterson’s tenure as Poet Laureate on March 31, 2011, the haiku-ish poems have been transferred to this special site dedicated to the submissions, so they can continue to inspire the participants, and the public, who might be tempted to unleash their originality in creating simple and satisfying haiku-ish poems.
