Who I Am is an apt title invitation to get to know better

one of America's most indelible haiku poets and poetic

voices. Michael Ketchek has been widely published in

national and international journals and anthologies for

over thirty years. His haiku are distinguished and

much beloved for their clarity, directness and passion.

Michael is equally adept at translating nature's nuances

as he is bringing light and insight to the human

condition. Never one to mince words or shy from truth

and injustice the poetry of Michael presents a timeless

road map through these times.
