Orion Tips the Saucepan Reviews
This neat booklet is Ashley Capes' first haiku collection - most of the poems are about nature. With very few words molded into usually three lines he invokes vibrant images of beauty and gives us a feeling about the changing seasons.He proves a vivid imagination, like in the very first haiku:summer nighta red seahorsein the cloudsFor me this is very satisfying - I feel the warmth of the summer night and have the image of the seahorse in the clouds right before my eyes. Amazing.In the poems you can find harmony and contrast, sometimes self-humour (thinking about a biscuit) and always proof of close observation.Before I discovered Ashley Capes as a poet I knew nothing about the Japanese poem form haiku. I read some of these short verses on his blog and was instantly fascinated. In the exciting and instructive An Introduction to Advanced Haiku, which is also written by Ashley Capes, the interested reader can learn more about the poem form and its use in the English language.
