Alone on a Wild Coast.
Alone on a Wild Coast
by Renée Owen.
From the back cover:
"I have long been a fan of Renée Owen's work, some of the most beautiful being written today. She manages to be both classical and modern at the same time, using fresh images and engaging, human-oriented themes. It's wonderful to have a full-length collection of her haiku, sequences, and haibun."
Editor emeritus, Modern Haiku

This collection includes not only many haiku but a dozen haibun spaced in triples through the book and also a pair of six-haiku series at the heart of the book.
Anyone who has paid attention to haibun in recent years will recognize poems that are already favorites, including:
Most of the haiku are in the familiar three-line format, but several of the initial haiku use the increasingly popular one-line form:
|alone on a wild coast twilight takes me|
|floating in mono lake salt sea sky|
A very welcome collection, to be savored and reread.
