Regina Harris Baiocchi

Like all good elixirs Regina’s poetry reflects a golden ear and platinum pen working in perfect tandem to distill the essence of life. Regina’s poems are pithy pieces of heaven that only a demigoddess can voice.

Praise for Haiku Festival’s Anthology:
“I am honored to introduce the world to a new generation of poets. Rooted in tradition, poets ages 8 to 14, give wings and new direction to the poetic form known as haiku. A wide array of topics are explored through innocent, inventive lenses. Sankofa-inspired respect for haiku past, present and future lingers long after these precious gems are read. This volume represents 10 years of young minds coming together to celebrate and expand the haiku mind.”

Prof. Sonia Sanchez
Author of morning haiku
