the earth pushes back, haiku by Bill Kenney
Shortlisted for the Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2016 by The Haiku Foundation!
Bill Kenney waited more than a decade before feeling the time was right for his first collection of haiku, and it was worth the wait. As Susan Constable notes, “Kenney takes us on a poignant journey through the seasons of nature and the poet’s life. Each word is thoughtfully chosen to produce haiku admirable in their simplicity and elegance. Multi-layered, this collection is one to be savoured again and again.” Alan Summers adds “The world within a person is looked squarely in the face, where nuance, timing, pacing, line breaks, and the sheer inner honesty of the work comes alive.”
