More > At the end of this "showpiece" of mine - compositions derived from two previous works: the first didactical; the second highlighting variants - "close-relatives", if you like - of the haiku! Waka, sappai, senyru, tanka and renga (or haiku-tanka sequences) all featured in that second edition. One piece crafted by me, of which am particularly fond, showcases a famous Japanese-legend. It is entitled:"TAKETORI MONOGATARI (竹取物語: The Tale of the Bamboo-Cutter)", and appears in the appendices to this "Showpiece" edition of my unique-brand of haiku for both occidental (western) and oriental cultures, but especially featuring season-words (kigo) from NZ-Down-Under!< Less

HAIKU DEATH SONGS: It is a tradition among the haiku poets of Japan, as life approaches its conclusion, to write poems expressing their views or feelings about death. These are known as "death... More > songs." This book is a collection of haiku death songs and other poems, ancient and modern, that speak of the death experience. The book has been shared with the hundreds of critical and terminal cancer patients that I cared for over sixteen intense years of caregiving, an experience that changed my views of death dramatically. I no longer see death as a frightening or final experience. It is just stepping through a door from one world into the next. It includes selections by contemporary western Buddhists such as Woody Allen, Bob Dylan, Richard Bach and Timothy Leary. It is provocative, insightful, reassuring; not at all morbid or grim. It even brings some welcome levity in places. This book is great reading for those dealing with mortality issues.< Less

Kishōtenketsu is an ancient Chinese and Japanese literary structure that presents stories in four distinct parts: ki (introduction), shō (development), ten (surprise), and ketsu...

LOST IN THE 4REST collects 52 four-sentence pieces that experiment with this fascinating literary format. Part flash fiction, part prose poetry, and across multiple genres, each selection creates a self-contained world, moment, or emotion held together by shock, wonder, or counterpoint. Together they offer a brief, vivid glimpse into the possibilities of non-Western narrative.< Less

The idea and... More > interest behind this first attempt to translate the substance and spirit of this Oriental poem form into its Occidental equivalent, began with this pine-tree-pruning author's consideration of "sister-city" relations between three nations of uniquely disparate cultures (highlighted in my list of key-words attached to this description), and in a determination to begin mastering this art-form, so as to make it more available to Ockers and Kiwis. Certainly, Irish, Maori, Australians and New-Zealanders of Asiatic ethnicity, and poetry-lovers of all ages, are societal-niches that will immediately benefit from and enjoy following my progress with this work!< Less
