 Haibun

The thread that runs through this cycle of poems is rich in faith, in dream, myth, magic, and the music of words. I know that each haibun rises with questions and ends with a haiku planted squarely in the here and now—here on Earth.

sirens through the night moth in a jar”


Glenn G Coats

Presenting her haibun as ‘poems,’ Chhoki recounts snippets of supernatural stories, confidential visions. All invite us in. Yet all usher us out at the end with a haiku spell – pine branches rise / like lammergeier wings; a blue thrush whistles in the rain; rope bridge to the shrine / Orion at dawn.

Stephen Henry Gill, Lecturer Kyoto University, Leader of Hailstone Haiku Circle, Japan
