eucalyptus wind, haiku of Karina M. Young
“Poet Karina M. Young shows us that haiku is more than a way of writing. It is a way of being in the world, of slowing down to notice, truly, the smallest — and paradoxically the most significant — things in life. A masterful collection by one of the best practitioners of the genre.”
— Susan Antolin
“In this book, we are clearly in the company of someone who has a reverence for nature and a keen eye for the small details that can easily escape the notice of someone less aware of her surroundings. These haiku are classical in feel, but Young’s approach is fresh and accessible. Though the focus is on nature, a compelling link to the human condition is there to be found as well. Take your time with these poems. They reward with repeated readings . . . the sign of fine haiku.”
