one branch, haiku by Stuart Bartow


Categories: ,


Shortlisted for the Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2019 by The Haiku Foundation!

“At once dreamlike and down-to-earth, mysterious yet very real, Stuart Bartow’s one branch conveys, from stars to owls to last week’s haircut, a sense of wonder of the world all around us.”
— Jeannie Martin, author of touch of light

“In Bartow’s second collection of haiku we find him waking to a blizzard of white moths, shoveling stars off his roof, finding strands of his own hair in a phoebe’s nest. Whether it be physics, reason, or the mad gardener in us, these hokku have us eagerly awaiting our own “mantids in the mail.”
— Robin White, Editor, The Akitsu Quarterly
