The title of Dan Schwerin’s first full-length book of haiku, Ors, raises many questions. The poems supply only some of the answers, because the poet doesn’t claim to have them all. These poems chronicle his search. Cherie Hunter Day notes, “I got goose bumps reading this manuscript. I particularly like the way he celebrates place — Waukesha, Wisconsin is “prairieville,” for instance — and also his vocation as a Methodist minister. There is an honesty that his work celebrates. No pretentiousness, no agenda, just present.”
