Description

David J Kelly’s years as a scientific scholar and his mastery of Japanese short form poetry come together to render his latest collection an illumination of the natural world in all its myriad manifestations. In this collection you get samples of it all: of human emotions and states of mind as they pass through the author be it self-irony, observations of human nature, and nature as nature, carefully expressed in the subgenres of haikai: haiku, senryu, haibun, concrete haiku and more.
