raking leaves: haiku of Yu Chang


“In simple words, Chang describes the world around him. His kind eyes are on a tiger moth in the leaves or a bee among cherry blossoms. As an immigrant like Chang, I sail from river to river, listen to a bamboo flute, and sip miso soup with tofu. Turning pages, a reader will hear the gentle sound of soothing ocean waves. This is a gem.”
— Fay Aoyagi


“Yu Chang’s raking leaves sheds light on his compassion for his family, his friends, and a smile of kinship for bugs, birds, flowers, plants, and, small animals. This volume contains a rewarding range of his haiku; some older favorites mixed with many new poems. They invite the reader to join him in his life journey; where less is more and each poem celebrates being here now.”
— Tom Clausen
