waking and dream, haibun by Glenn G. Coats
Winner of a Haiku Society of America Merit Book Award 2018 (First Place) for Best Book of Haibun!
Glenn Coats’s first full-length collection of English-language haibun is rooted in his rural Virginia locale, and populated with those with whom he grew up amid and around. As a consequence there is an uncanny sense of place to be felt here, as though we are living these recollections with him, not only again, but anew.
“[This] is a collection of meticulously recorded observations in which there is a flow of associative ideas. These haibun invite us into the world of an attentive observer whose language is precise and flows with gentle ease.” — Patricia Prime, co-editor, Kokako
