Là où l’eau salée se mêle à l’eau douce / Where Saltwater Mixes With Freshwater, haiku of Kent Neal


Categories: ,


Kent Neal’s first full-length collection of haiku features the natural landscapes of his native Oregon and his adopted France, in two languages. As Jean Antonini notes, “By writing these 80 haiku, Kent Neal saw his childhood again and came close to moments that shaped his life. If writing a haiku is good preparation for writing a novel, as Roland Barthes pointed out, the reader will find many novels here.” Not to mention many moments they will savor and identify with.

marée haute, marée basse
est-ce que je lui plais
ou pas ?

high tide, low tide
does he like me
or not?

     vague après vague
     le fleuve découvre une pointe de flèche
     en obsidienne

     wave after wave
     the river uncovers an obsidian
