emoji moon, haiku and related text by John Stevenson
Winner of a Haiku Society of America Merit Book Award 2019 (Third Place) for Best Book of Haiku!
John Stevenson’s string of outstanding individual collections of haiku and haikai (which includes Some of the Silence, quiet enough, Live Again and d(ark) from Red Moon Press) is extended with this characteristically sharp and poignant compendium of his most recent published and unpublished work. Voice is one of the most difficult things to attain in haiku, and John’s is unmistakable.
“Some of these poems show us a new way to look at an everyday moment while others bring us to the threshold of the surreal. In each, what is ultimately most satisfying is John’s attention to language — just the right words and not one extra.”
— Susan Antolin, editor of Acorn
