These are haiku of celebration and honest recording in which elements of the diverse environment of coastal, northern New South Wales are given their full due. Respect for the genre’s tradition is evident in these honed observations but their ambience is local and their time is now. The Whole Body Singing makes a valid contribution to the development of English-language haiku written in the southern hemisphere.
