afriku, haiku and Senryui from Ghana by Adjei Agyei-Baah


Categories: ,


“A new voice in haiku, hailing from Ghana and a leader in the growing haiku movement of Afriku, Adjei Agyei-Baah enriches our world in demonstrating an accomplished sense of this brief poetic form. Often, animal, human and natural forms relate intimately in a fluid and organic sociality which belies the term “personification.” These works reveal a poet’s passion for his world and culture, without compromise — I highly recommend this book!” — Richard Gilbert
