bug-eyed and bird-brained, haiku by Rick Clark


Categories: ,


Rick Clark has a passion and a compassion for the small creatures of the world. These inclinations are on full display here, as are his feeling for the traditional tropes of haiku, and a predilection for a Zen orientation. Combine this with the astute and playful illustrations of Fumiko Kimura and you have a striking first full-length collection of haiku.

“Lively but sure brush strokes in Fumiko Kimura’s ink painting illustrate Rick Clark’s haiku ending with ‘the robin catches flies with ease.’ This phrase captures the essence of Clark’s haiku collection featuring nature observed with human warmth and humor.”

     the local wren —
     building her nest up inside
     the metal heron

     drifting freely
     around the lily pad pond —
     a duck decoy
