"There are many wonderful haijin out there deftly presenting the case for haiku. I'm probably better suited as an observer; rather more like a student of the art than a lawyer for its defense [or prosecution.]"  "Anonymity  [the closest we can get to invisibility] facilitates a wish/need to breathe-in each now-moment as fully liberated as possible... there is a serene freedom in solitude. It affords an extraordinary luxury to absorb life… wherein, sometimes, I might jot down a few ordinary notes."

"To quote Ryokan [a favorite poet]:  "the nightingale's song / brings me out of a dream: / the morning glows" …then the very fine haijin ai li:  "quiet observation enables us to write truthfully"… to which I can only add: "yes!"

Examples of his work appear in various publications, some of which are:
Across the Dark [pub: Celestial Arts]; Tearing Mind/Silent Streams [Sea Litho Press]; Dalhousie Gazette [Joseph Howe Award; archives]; Haiku Journal [2nd annual International Yuki Teikei Haiku Contest; Sumitomo Bank Award]; Cicada; Dragonfly; Poet; Lucidity; Quiet Storms [Michael Hoppe, Gaia Records]; The Yearning [Michael Hoppe; pub: Chordially Yours Music; Bainbridge Records]; The Dreamer [Michael Hoppe; pub: Chordially Yours Music; Bainbridge Records]; Requiem [Michael Hoppe; pub: Chordially Yours Music];Today's Beautiful Gem  [e-mag]; Quotes That Leave A Mark" [e-pub]; Jiyu-Katari [New Haiku Contest (awarded)]; The Hawaii Education Association International Haiku Contest [for: "humourous" (senryu); "Hawaii word"; "season word"]; Clouds Peak; Tinywords;;; foggy autumn lake [B.
