seed kites: haiku of David Watts


“Brimming with a love of nature and of life itself,these poems work their magic on the reader quietly and deftly. With an eye for images that mark the passage of time, bring a natural scene into focus, or reveal the subtleties of human relationships, David Watts engages with the world with a sense of wonder that is both compelling and captivating.”— Susan Antolin (Editor, Acorn: a Journal of Contemporary Haiku)


“An auspicious Red Moon Press debut, seed kites presents David Watts in both familiar and new lights. Varieties of light, in fact; some piercing, some comforting, some illuminating. Read it aloud and it will carry you along like a windborne seed, promising the possibility of a landing on fertile ground.”

— John Stevenson (Managing Editor, The Heron’s Nest)

mini drought
the river unfolds
around a rock

raising our son
the random song
of a wind chime

old philosophy books
my father’s arguments
in the margins

dandelion dreams
seed kites
cling to the breeze
