between waves, haiku by Alexis Rotella


Categories: ,


Shortlisted for the Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2015 by The Haiku Foundation!

Alexis Rotella is widely regarded as one of the most influential haiku poets ever to have written in English. She invented the “psychological haiku” in this language, and has been identified with senryu for decades. Grace Cavalieri identifies some of the motivations behind her work: “Rotella’s images and words must be in collaboration with the Divine. She captures this life on earth — for all its beauty and wisdom — with new awareness — a sacred thing. Best of all, looking at her work is all you need to know of love.”

     The secret told —
     the house now
     light and airy

          Through duckweed
          a swan plows a path
          to tomorrow

     Autumn —
     I sit inside
     its holiness
