It was with great sadness in April this year that we read the police confirmation that Martin Lucas, haiku poet and editor and publisher of the British haiku journal, Presence, had drowned. Martin’s articulate insight into what makes good haiku is irreplaceable
and his voice is very much missed. Matthew Paul, along with Stuart Quine and Ian Storr, will be continuing Presence. It is fitting that Matthew Paul has written an insightful personal appreciation of Martin and his work for this issue of A Hundred Gourds.
