“Those who knew Michael McClintock as the foremost poet of ‘liberated haiku’ decades ago will discover here a more deeply liberated tanka poet. In Meals at Midnight we find the utter simplicity of a man who has found the world new, through love, and with that, a language free of artifice or struggles for effect. These are deeply, purely, the poems of a liberated heart, innocent and playful against the tapestry of the universe— It has been worth the wait.” —William J. Higginson, author, The Haiku Handbook, etc..
“Michael McClintock has given us an exquisite collection where every poem, in its tight and masterfully-crafted lines, is rich with unexpected imagery and layers of narrative. Every poem vibrates with the eternal resonance of myth and seasons within its immediate story; every one gives us something far beyond the moment. . . .” —Laura Maffei, Editor and Founder, American Tanka
