young osprey, haiku by Bill Cooper
Winner of a Haiku Society of America Merit Book Award 2016 (HM) for Best Book of Haiku!
Bill Cooper’s second full-length collection with RMP, young osprey, shows his remarkable growth and maturity within the genre in a very short time. It is filled with sharp observation coupled with exact language, as befits a writer with a science background and a poetic sensibility. Lorin Ford notes “Empathy for others . . . pervades [Cooper’s] haiku, as does a gentle sense of humour . . .” It is not too much to say that with young osprey Cooper’s haiku have become fully-fledged.
