Evergreen Moon, haiku of Rebecca Lilly
Rebecca Lilly’s several previous volumes have explored her immediate environs, and the circumstances of coming to (meta-)physical as well as geographical terms in these places. Evergreen Moon takes this a step farther, serving as a contemplation of the poet’s ancestral home, at the time of her imminent departure from it. For it she devises an innovative style, pairing a traditional haiku with a freer poem that is the figure to the haiku’s ground. The result is quite unlike anything else you will have read. This is a move you will want to make with her.
between yes and no a child’s lens stitching chasms Biting cold — a crow cocks his head between trellis boards * monotonous sorrow it’s the same cloud of birds going elsewhere not touching down Late shadows — geese curve into the mountains
