buzz, haiku of David Jacobs
David Jacobs is that rare haiku poet — an established mainstream poet, having published in literary periodicals and poetry journals worldwide. His collections include Haarlem Road (Peterloo, 1988) which was reviewed favorably in the [London] Times Literary Supplement.
buzz shows how adept he is working in his current genre of choice. Kevin Bailey suggests that to read Jacobs’ haiku “is about as close as anyone can get to taking a holiday in another person’s head.” And Alan Summers notes that he takes up “our daily commute, thoughts of death and other powerful experiences . . . and glimpses of a father and son relationship.” His work aims for the full spectrum of experience, ambitious for a genre so seemingly tiny.
Jacobs is currently Reviews Editor for the British Haiku Society journal Blithe Spirit and ‘haiku poet in residence’ for Margravine Cemetery in Baron’s Court, London, where he lives.
