Book of the Week – Pilgrimage by Michael Dudley

In a review of Pilgrimage, Jim Kacian writes – “These brief, evocative poems of pilgrimage by Michael Dudley both subtly and explicitly explore the natural world and environmental issues, the dynamics of human relationships and sexuality, the complexity of political and social themes, and the multiple dimensions of spirituality.”

There is a brief bio of Michael in his Poet Profile on the Haiku Registry and be sure to check out his personal website.

sun just up—
a jogger chases his shadow
through the graveyard

from lovemaking
I phone in sick

night tide:
small sandals rise
and slide away from shore

harmonica blues . . .
across the blackened room
a face flares

  1. This was the Book of the Week last week …. Link never worked. Now, it appears to be Book of the Week again, but the link still doesn’t work. Perhaps there is a broken link beyond just this book.
