Dad’s Accordion, haiku of Marcus Larsson


Categories: ,


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
