This Peace by Robyn Cairns, is a collection of short form poetry including; haiku, senryu, tanka, haibun, micro-poetry and haiga (featuring the author’s art and photography). The poetry was written predominantly in the year following her father’s death in 2017—and is very close to the heart.

Well known Canadian haiku poet and good friend Marianne Paul generously wrote the blurb for the book.

On March 17th I had the privilege of launching Jane Williams’ new haiku collection, Echoes of Flight in the bushland setting of Waterworks Reserve, on a day of perfect autumn sunshine sharpened with the pungency of eucalyptus leaves and blossom.
Jane Williams is one of the most versatile writers I know. Her work covers a wide range of genres – poetry, short stories and writing for children – In fact, we can look forward to the release of a collection of poems for children and a children’s picture book later this year, making 2018 a trifecta of achievements in publishing her work. She also writes a variety of Japanese-style short form works including haibun, haiga and tanka. This latest collection, her eighth, is a selection of her haiku and senryu.
Jane Williams is a poet who notices things, who pays attention to her surroundings with curiosity and wonder. That curiosity and wonder is evident in the opening poem of her new collection. Continue reading “Echoes of Flight: haiku & senryu – launch”

‘Echoes of Flight is a wonderful treasure box of haiku moments experienced through finely tuned poetic senses.
