Dad’s Accordion, haiku of Marcus Larsson
Winner of a Haiku Society of America Merit Book Award 2019 (HM) for Best Book of Haiku!
“I know few haiku poets writing in English whose work is completely rooted in Nature yet probes so deeply into human emotions and relationships. Larsson’s mastery of the classic tools of haiku, seasonality and caesura, combine to offer what we might term “metaphor light.” For example, in the several “wind” haiku in this collection, for Larson the spring wind engenders a kind of playfulness. The poet feels wistfulness in the summer wind and finds portent in the autumn wind.” — Charles Trumbull
long winter nothing written on his cast spring stars your voice in bed not tired I can see us living where we pass through summer travels
