Ekphrastic haiku are a specialty of the Irish writer, Gabriel Rosenstock
. His Ducks in Search of the Moon
provides us with the double pleasure of fine old works of art and excellent haiku, and is our Book of the Week.
The attached PDF was extracted from a presentation to the Haiku Arbutus group in Victoria, BC, by Gabriel, the Keynote Speaker at Haiku Canada 2015, held in James Bay, Victoria, BC May 15-17, 2015. You can view that video, put together by Jim Swift, at https://vimeo.com/128382974
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
