Bamboo Dreams: An Anthology of Haiku Poetry from Ireland (2012)



Albert Camus said, “In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.” All of us have a favourite season, and summer has always been mine. With this month’s spotlight, I wanted to capture the essence of summer in all its glory (early, mid, late), however fleetingly. Skip some stones, chase a firefly, leisurely sip coconut water, or bite into a melon. I hope you enjoy dipping your toes in the river of haiku or stop by to become one with the quintessentially blue, blue skies. 

Thank you all.

Shloka Shankar

Lovely one, Marion.

Love your word choices.


skip jive - beautiful

The assonance of the short i sound goes with the rhythm of the movement.
