Quaking Marsh, haiku of Stuart Bartow


Categories: ,


“Stuart Bartow, too, lives under the moon with all the fireflies and orb weavers he so enchantingly muses about. And there is a brilliance there, not unlike the stars he shovels off his roof on a cold winter’s night. Perhaps the reason his house creaks and the wind does all the talking is just so Stuart Bartow, the poet, will lean in to listen… Quaking Marsh is a gem, an “alphabet of stars,” but don’t believe me, believe the hermit thrush, and the snow buntings flying like fish.”

          — Robin White, founding editor Akitsu Quarterly

“Like his volumes of superb nature poetry in longer forms, Stuart Bartow sharpens his obsessions — stars, birds, moths — in haiku that startle and delight. At home in the country, neighborly with crickets and ravens, Bartow is a disciple of Issa with his own surprising slant:”

          — Barbara Ungar

          for an instant
          forgetting where
          in the stars

     the marsh in midsummer bullfrogs translating

                    fox tracks in the snow
