coming storm: haiku of Dave Reynolds


“In his new collection, coming storm, Dave Reynolds explores themes of love, loss, nature, and the quiet beauty found in everyday life. From the reflection on a doe’s belly brushing the snow to the stillness of a cemetery at dawn, coming storm balances moments of serenity and tension. Reynolds’ collection is a testament to the power of concise, evocative language.”
— Julie Schwerin
Co-Editor, A New Resonance


“Haiku is a demanding form, and Reynolds has devoted a lifetime to becoming one of its English masters. His poems are precise yet seem effortless, suggesting sentences he doesn’t even complete. In the most compressed poetic space he discovers everything from humor to politics, the natural world and much more, all conveyed with precise emotional depth.”
— David J. Rothman, winner of the 2024 Karen Chamberlain Lifetime Achievement Award for Poetry in Colorado

January morning
coffee and spouse

another year
another columbine shooting
up through the dirt

fly-fishing with father
he learns
to mend

warm autumn day
folding the hoses
before they stiffen
