Poem of the Week: a haiku by Andrew Gibbons

Posted on July 06, 2017 by Rebecca Robinson | 0 comments

Unfocused landscape --------

windows curtained with rain.


leaking into days.

                           -------Andrew Gibbons


This haiku enthrals the reader with its vivid images, syntactical parataxis and suggestive half-rhyme. One among the many in the pocket-size The Haiku Hundred published by the Iron Press, this poem conjures up a meditative picture with sparse brushstrokes, pointing to the world beyond the text.



Handsomely printed in vermilion, these haikus are a pleasure to read: the 1992 edition has ran up to six prints. A new edition has been published by Iron Press, and is available to purchase on our website here.
