Without, Haiku


by Leigh Herrick

Book Image Not Available
In her second book of poetry, Leigh Herrick returns to Zen with remarkable freshness, drawing anew from the simple richness of the natural world as the philosophy of silence becomes a quiet way of knowing and being.
Returning to the teachings of Zen-Buddhism, Leigh Herrick's second book of poetry is a stunning accomplishment of remarkable freshness and minimalism. Here, in 86 poems, the poet draws from the simple richness of the natural world as the philosophy of silence, by Way of quietude, becomes a means of peace, contemplation, and ultimate rejuvenation. A great weight seems to ease in this work as the bare beauty of nature—intrinsic to Zen and haiku—unfolds: "One line— / June bug on the screen / —Ten thousand dreams." Written over three seasons, beginning in June and ending in late October, WITHOUT, HAIKU reveals a very personal glimpse into the poet’s daily life as she shares her intimate engagement with her garden surroundings and her occasional reflections on the outer world. Leigh Herrick's WITHOUT, HAIKU is a beautiful endeavor and an enlightening read for any who seek a little time to journey inward, revitalize, and reconnect.
