into the stillness: split sequences of Peter Jastermsky


“Through the creation and development of the split sequence form, Peter Jastermsky reminds us that one of the most integral aspects of creation is the act of play. Peter’s ability with words and their organization helps to unlock a new depth of poetic meaning and experience. The creation of the split sequence form affords us the ability to express new ideas and to give us all a new way to play.”
— Bryan Rickert (Editor, Failed Haiku)


“A master of his own invention, Peter Jastermsky takes us on an adventurous ride with just a few words, linking and shifting, treading the paths of reflection, retrospection, mid-life crisis, aging, last loves, hope, and many more. into the stillness is a book you will want to read again and again, not only to learn the “secret” to writing split sequences, but also to be still and to be swept away to dream and imagine.”
— Christine L. Villa (Editor, Frameless Sky)


old growth

beneath the canopy
a home
for the up and coming

young ones

soil and sky
feast enough
for a forest

learning their way

on a roll
the clouds ready
with rain
