Chad Lee Robinson

The White Buffalo celebrates the land of the Lakota. Not only its rugged terrain but a life lived in harmony with the horse and with the buffalo. There is grief too for the loss of this majesty. Each haiku is a gem: polished and focused. Chad Lee Robinson’s poems are unmistakably original and authentic. His connection runs deep to the very spirit of place.

Chad Lee Robinson‘s work has been honored with several awards over the years, including a Pushcart Prize nomination from Modern Haiku and two Touchstone Awards for Individual Poems from The Haiku Foundation. His three previous collections of haiku were all contest winners: Pop Bottles (True Vine Press, 2009), Rope Marks (Snapshot Press, 2012), and The Deep End of the Sky (Turtle Light Press, 2015), which also received second place in the Merit Book Awards from the Haiku Society of America. He lives in central South Dakota with his wife and son.
