What Light There Is, haiku, senryu and tanka of Sylvia Forges-Ryan, with haiga by Ion Codrescu
Winner of an Honorable Mention for a Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2016 from The Haiku Foundation!
Sylvia Forges-Ryan, former editor of Frogpond, has not published a volume since her award-winning Take a Deep Breath a decade ago. Instead, she has been shaping the threads of her writing — haiku, senryu and tanka — into the cohesive whole that is What Light There Is, a deep and artistic meditation on love, loneliness, aging, and the pieces of the quotidian we hold on to that bind them, and us, together. Add to this Ion Codrescu’s deft and sensitive haiga and you have one of the most telling haiku experiences to be found between two covers.
