Wildflowers in a Vase: Haiku of Edward Cody Huddleston
Edward Cody Huddleston’s debut collection of haiku shows he has already reached maturity in the genre, with the promise of much more to come.
The woman who doesn’t look at the camera may be his ex. The woman who names the children she didn’t have may be his mother. The woman who tells about her twenties may be his grandmother. Edward Cody Huddleston may be the wind that sways these flowers gently. Or he may be the insect nurtured by these flowers. On the darkest night there can be moonlight, and as readers it shines on our fingers, as we turn each wondrous page of this debut collection. Here we unbox inner childhoods and old train sets, run our hands through wildflowers sprinkled throughout the book, alongside other equally mesmerizing haiku.
starlight the past never stops happening
