again & again: haiku of Guy Nesom


“Nesom writes with insight and unsentimental assurance. His evocative observations about these subtle and poignant moments are related to us with compositional confidence and reflect the mind of one attuned to the sincerity of haiku within space and time, transporting us to other perspectives. I can’t say enough.”
— Nigel Farnsworth, literature critic


“Nesom doesn’t think of himself as a poet. While we might agree, our group unanimously enjoyed reading page 32.”
— Sybil Beach, Social Chair, Surf City Haiku Assoc.

No, Guy Nesom doesn’t take himself too seriously as a poet — as these self-deprecating and self-written blurbs testify — which is part of the fun. Enjoy this quirky take on a genre that can be altogether too sure of itself.

filled for spring

steady light
of a beeswax candle
from the Amish

in his web
