Matthew Defibaugh (USA)

Mattthew Defibaugh is a Virginia-based haiku enthusiast. Diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, he started experimenting with poetry not long before he began relying on a wheelchair. His work is influenced by love, loss, disability, and his compassion for others and the environment. His poetry is as matter-of-fact as it is romantic, employing imagery that is plain yet sometimes provocative. Frogpond, Modern Haiku, Wales Haiku Journal, The Nick Virgilio Haiku Association, and The Haiku Foundation (THF) have featured his writing.
