light packing, haiku of Elmedin Kadric
Elmedin Kadric’s second full-length collection for Red Moon Press is just as potent and ground-breaking as his award-winning first, buying time. Which is not surprising, given that (as Lee Gurga puts it), Kadric is “one of the most interesting minds writing haiku today.”
Cherie Hunter Day exhorts us to “Tear off the wrapping paper and get right down to it — these poems are gifts.” and John Stevenson adds ”light packing is a cover-to-cover pleasure; a sparsely populated planet on which nothing that is less than meaningful has evolved.”
