A definitive collection of 194 haiku that brings together a plethora of diverse natural, cultural, and geographical influences from Navarro's life as a wandering poet-philosopher and minister emphasizing a love of nature and mindfulness.
Navarro draws on a lifetime of learning haiku (40 years), beginning at 19 years old when he discovered its origins in the heart of ancient Chinese poetry (Sensai and Hõ Un); through the quintessential influences of the four great Japanese hokku/haiku masters, Basho, Buson, Issa, and Shiki.
Readers will find everything from traditional English language 5-7-5 haiku, to more modern renditions with fewer syllables, some gendai haiku, semantic disjunctions, and even some senryu. Navarro's haiku are thoroughly steeped in modern American nature, culture, geography, and tradition. He brings haiku to life in a way that is relatable and accessible to the modern reader while faithfully maintaining the sharp visual nature of the form.
An influential haiku book which has made an impact on the haiku community and among academic researchers.
GRIPPING DARK AUSTRALIAN STORY
In the distance a man watches her
Perfect she stands on the beach
Wavelets lapping at her feet
He desires her, he will charm her
She will come with him like others
Where are those others now?
She goes with him, travelling to distant places
They walk all alone in a land of bright sunlight
She sees not the shadows hiding in the dark
Awful secrets emerge - she knows she must escape.
But she is trapped with him in the middle of nowhere.
Her hands and feet are tied. She is a captive.
He is taking her to a place of huge crocodiles.
She fears she will vanish inside them forever!
How could it have come to this?
