About this Item: Kyso Flash, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. From the book s Introduction, by Clare MacQueen: If you adore a good story-one that s well written and well told, one that entertains and inspires, the kind that dazzles and makes you weep and laugh out loud at the same time-then you re in for a treat with New Shoes. This wondrous collection by poet and master story-teller Dan Gilmore offers 53 noteworthy stories to savor: specifically, haibun stories, a hybrid form of flash writing which blends prose poems with haiku or senryu. Like a Zen slap on the reader s back, Gilmore says, the haiku enriches, deepens, and expands the prose. The emotionally resonant narratives in this book may be tiny (with the shortest running 68 words and the longest, 439), but they address large and universal themes-life and death, love and loss-with penetrating wisdom and insight. Their subject matter and tone range from dead serious, to nostalgic and mournful, to whimsical and absurd, to downright hilarious. New Shoes is Gilmore s fifth collection of poems and stories. He s also author of a novel, and, not surprisingly, nearly 80 years on the planet have blessed him with an abundance of rich material to draw from. Beyond a myriad of roles as son, brother, spouse, life partner, friend, father, and grandfather, his life experiences also include blue-, white-, and gold-collar jobs from (among others) fry cook to college dean to psychologist-plus, ongoing work as a no-collar jazz musician and creative writer. He calls writing the hardest and most enjoyable thing I have ever done. As a fellow seeker (i.e., one who never stops wondering), I enjoy Gilmore s gently irreverent way of looking at life. I also relish the undercurrent of quirkiness and the interplay of comedy and tragedy in his work, his haibun especially, many of which are fables and allegories. They explore the human struggle to make sense of things that often seem incomprehensible, in particular existential and spiritual matters. In a few, Gilmore plays it serious and somber, while in others, he plays with the absurd, experimenting both with the garnish of excess in the telling of the story and with the haibun form itself. In The Hyperbolist, for example, he incorporates not only senryu but also free verse and tanka-a fine illustration of his premise: . .I throw off the reins of propriety. I dance the dance of embellishment. I am addicted to blatant ornamentation and corpulent elaboration. For it s the garnish of excess that tastes so much sweeter. At KYSO Flash, we re keen on publishing boundary-stretching hybrids like these. Innovative haibun may contain imagined realities, narrative threads, or other elements of fiction such as characterization and dialogue to tell their truths, which is why we prefer the term haibun stories for such works. In addition to multiple haiku or senryu of various line lengths (one to four), they may also include tanka. Once in a blue moon, we may even see that rarest of hybrids: prose + haiku + tanka. Raymond s Epiphany (page 66) is an example of this rarity, and a remarkable story in more ways than one. The majority of works here in New Shoes can be called innovative, stretching as they do the boundaries of traditional English-language haibun, a form which continues to evolve more than 50 years after Beat Poets such as Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and Gary Snyder began writing haiku. While Gilmore has been writing poetry and fiction for 20 years now, his first experiments with haibun began a year ago. In February 2015, he enthusiastically accepted the KYSO Flash challenge for writers of prose poems and micro-fictions to try their hand at haibun stories. One thing quickly led to another, and we were delighted to release his first collection of narrative haibun barely three months later, in May. The 23 works from his chapbook Just Before Sleep were then featured in Issue 3 (Spring 2015) of KYSO Flash online. Seller Inventory # APC9780986270352

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Debbi Antebi produces social observations we can recognise in ourselves at least once in our lives, and if we are honest, possibly several times. The senryu are some of the very best I ve read, and have that rare added essence of haiku at times. At other times the author includes distinctive senryu aspects into her haiku, absorbing qualities of both genres. Reading her senryu (a type of comic verse) they are superior to one level jokes, or anecdotes, that we might only read once, enjoy, and move on without revisiting. Her senryu are incredibly touching and blisteringly honest, yet reassuringly comforting and necessary in times of need. Her haiku merge with a touch of senryu making them also highly re-readable, and not just once or twice more, but several times over the years. One particular haiku, with a senryu flavour, is one of the finest examples of how you can add an aspect of one genre to another: It begins with falling leaves , and is one I will keep close to my heart. I ve already read many many times each poem, be it senryu or haiku, from running out of words , possibly one of the most contemporary and insightful senryu I ve ever read, to family dinner , alone at home with a water leak , to catching up , and moving day as well as visiting home . I can t reveal these poems because I want you to have that honour. - Alan Summers, President, United Haiku and Tanka Society, Co-Founder, Call of the Page. Seller Inventory # APC9781548085353

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Traci Siler, Keri Colestock (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In the last couple of years, I ve got to know Traci Siler, Edwin Patterson and others bitten by mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus (WNV). Their stories are interesting and significant. WNV is a mimic -- it acts like other illnesses, such as MS and Lupus, making it difficult to treat. Health care professionals often treat symptoms rather than WNV, putting patients at risk and delaying treatment of WNV. Though there really is no treatment of WNV; doctors have to use drugs or physical therapy to tackle symptoms -- drugs, physical therapy, diet and exercise, et al. A delay in treatment might mean, for example, the drugs -- morphine -- needed to treat aches need to be stronger. By the way, there is no vaccine; there is for horses with WNV, but not humans. The book centers around WNV and Traci Siler. who is very prolific and outspoken about the virus. She was one of those misdiagnosed. However, other infections and people are included. There are poems about Ebola, flu, smallpox and others. One of the-infections- is an adverse reaction to a common generic drug. The book is essentially three parts: WNV poems, other infections, tanka and haiga, and poetic bios. At the end of the book is a brief explanation of the pandemics. Part of the inspiration for doing a book is Traci s Beneath a Morphine Moon, edited by Ed Bremson. A selection from the book, modified to haiga is included along with some additional work by Traci. In addition, poets writing at Tanka Poets on Site are represented with a selection based upon the painting, Morphine Moon This edition adds new poems. Seller Inventory # APC9781507872222

About this Item: Columbia University Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For Nirvana features exceptional examples of the poet Cho Oh-Hyun s award-winning work. Cho Oh-Hyun was born in Miryang, South Gyeongsang Province, Korea, and has lived in retreat in the mountains since becoming a novice monk at the age of seven. Writing under the Buddhist name Musan, he has composed hundreds of poems in seclusion, many in the sijo style, a relatively fixed syllabic poetic form similar to Japanese haiku and tanka. For Nirvana contains 108 Zen sijo poems (108 representing the number of klesas, or defilements, that one must overcome to attain enlightenment). These transfixing works play with traditional religious and metaphysical themes and include a number of story sijo, a longer, more personal style that is one of Cho Oh-Hyun s major innovations. Kwon Youngmin, a leading scholar of sijo, provides a contextualizing introduction, and in his afterword, Heinz Insu Fenkl reflects on the unique challenges of translating the collection.

About this Item: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 46 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 8.5in. x 0.1in.Debbi Antebi produces social observations we can recognise in ourselves at least once in our lives, and if we are honest, possibly several times. The senryu are some of the very best Ive read, and have that rare added essence of haiku at times. At other times the author includes distinctive senryu aspects into her haiku, absorbing qualities of both genres. Reading her senryu (a type of comic verse) they are superior to one level jokes, or anecdotes, that we might only read once, enjoy, and move on without revisiting. Her senryu are incredibly touching and blisteringly honest, yet reassuringly comforting and necessary in times of need. Her haiku merge with a touch of senryu making them also highly re-readable, and not just once or twice more, but several times over the years. One particular haiku, with a senryu flavour, is one of the finest examples of how you can add an aspect of one genre to another: It begins with falling leaves, and is one I will keep close to my heart. Ive already read many many times each poem, be it senryu or haiku, from running out of words, possibly one of the most contemporary and insightful senryu Ive ever read, to family dinner, alone at home with a water leak, to catching up, and moving day as well as visiting home. I cant reveal these poems because I want you to have that honour. Alan Summers, President, United Haiku and Tanka Society, Co-Founder, Call of the Page This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.

About this Item: MBT,, Guilford, Connecticut, 2005. Original Wraps. Condition: As New. 60 p. 50 ill. from photographs (3 color) of fences, gates and gateposts, mostly from the Colonial and Federalist period (with some later examples) in the town of Guilford, Connecticut, a distinctive Connecticut village with one of the largest numbers of seventeenth and eighteenth century houses in New England, including the oldest surviving stone house. The photographs, reminiscent of the work of Wright Morris, are handsomely composed and printed. Accompanying the photographs is a selection of experimental poems by the photographer in a variety of styles (haiku, tanka, quatrain, acrostic, cinquain, diamante, epitaph, naani, shaped poem, Lanturne, Tyburn, etc.) with a discussion of the basic characteristics of each type and an introductory statement on photography, poetry and the architectural character of Guilford. The poems and photographs interact, with each poem representing a literary equivalent of its visual photographic twin. Includes biographical note on the photographer-poet. A stunning first book and a remarkable achievement for an author just turned seventeen at the time of publication. Seller Inventory # 014201

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In the literary and artistic milieu of early modern Japan the Chinese and Japanese arts flourished side by side. Kodojin, the Old Taoist (1865-1944), was the last of these great poet-painters in Japan. Under the support of various patrons, he composed a number of Taoist-influenced Chinese and Japanese poems and did lively and delightful ink paintings, continuing the tradition of the poet-sage who devotes himself to study of the ancients, lives quietly and modestly, and creates art primarily for himself and his friends. Portraying this last representative of a tradition of gentle and refined artistry in the midst of a society that valued economic growth and national achievement above all, this beautifully illustrated book brings together 150 of Kodojin s Chinese poems (introduced and translated by Jonathan Chaves), more than 100 of his haiku and tanka (introduced and translated by Stephen Addiss), and many examples of his calligraphy and ink paintings. Addiss s in-depth introduction details the importance of the poet-painter tradition, outlines the life of Kodojin, and offers a critical appraisal of his work, while J. Thomas Rimer s essay puts the literary work of the Old Taoist in context. Seller Inventory # BTE9780231116572

Thunderstorm Waka (¿¿, literally 'Japanese poem') or Yamato uta is a genre of classical Japanese verse and one of the major genres of Japanese literature. The term was coined during the Heian period, and was used to distinguish Japanese-language poetry from kanshi (poetry written in Chinese by Japanese poets), and later from renga. The term waka originally encompassed a number of differing forms, principally tanka (¿¿, 'short poem') and choka (¿¿, 'long poem'), but also including bussokusekika, sedoka (¿¿¿, 'memorized poem') and katauta (¿¿, 'poem fragment'). These last three forms, however, fell into disuse at the beginning of the Heian period, and choka vanished soon afterwards. Thus, the term waka came in time to refer only to tanka. Japanese poet and critic Masaoka Shiki created the term tanka in the early twentieth century for his statement that waka should be renewed and modernized. Until then, poems of this nature had been referred to as waka or simply uta ('song, poem'). Haiku is also a term of his invention, used for his revision of standalone hokku, with the same idea. Traditionally waka in general has had no concept of rhyme (indeed, certain arrangements of rhymes, even accidental, were considered dire faults in a poem), or even of line. Instead of lines, waka has the unit (¿) and the phrase (¿). (Units or phrases are often turned into lines when poetry is translated or transliterated into Western languages, however.) Choka consists of 5-7 Japanese sound units phrases repeated at least twice, and concludes with a 5-7-7 ending. The briefest choka documented was made by Yamanoue no Okura in the Nara period, and goes: ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿ 96 pp. Englisch. Seller Inventory # 9781156566473

About this Item: Taylor Francis Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry - from the folk songs of the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) compiled in 712 and the court poetry of the 9th to the 14th centuries, on through the age of haikai and kanshi to the 19th century, into the contemporary period when books of women s poems have created a sensation.This anthology presents examples of the work of more than 100 Japanese women poets, arranged chronologically, and of all the major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai (haiku), kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems describe not just seasonal changes and the vagaries of love - which form the thematic core of traditional Japanese poetry - but also the devastations of war, childbirth, conflicts between child-rearing and work, experiences as refugees, experiences as non-Japanese residents in Japan, and more.Sections of poetry open with headnotes, and the editor has provided explanations of terms and references for those unfamiliar with the Japanese language. Other useful tools include a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography that points the reader toward other works by and about these poets. There is no comparable collection available in English.Students and anyone who appreciates poetry and Japanese culture will treasure this magnificent anthology. Editor and translator Hiroaki Sato is a past winner of the PEN America translator prize and the Japan-United States Friendship Commission s 1999 literary translation award.

About this Item: Taylor Francis Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry - from the folk songs of the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) compiled in 712 and the court poetry of the 9th to the 14th centuries, on through the age of haikai and kanshi to the 19th century, into the contemporary period when books of women s poems have created a sensation.This anthology presents examples of the work of more than 100 Japanese women poets, arranged chronologically, and of all the major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai (haiku), kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems describe not just seasonal changes and the vagaries of love - which form the thematic core of traditional Japanese poetry - but also the devastations of war, childbirth, conflicts between child-rearing and work, experiences as refugees, experiences as non-Japanese residents in Japan, and more.Sections of poetry open with headnotes, and the editor has provided explanations of terms and references for those unfamiliar with the Japanese language. Other useful tools include a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography that points the reader toward other works by and about these poets. There is no comparable collection available in English.Students and anyone who appreciates poetry and Japanese culture will treasure this magnificent anthology. Editor and translator Hiroaki Sato is a past winner of the PEN America translator prize and the Japan-United States Friendship Commission s 1999 literary translation award.

About this Item: Columbia University Press, United States, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For Nirvana features exceptional examples of the poet Cho Oh-Hyun s award-winning work. Cho Oh-Hyun was born in Miryang, South Gyeongsang Province, Korea, and has lived in retreat in the mountains since becoming a novice monk at the age of seven. Writing under the Buddhist name Musan, he has composed hundreds of poems in seclusion, many in the sijo style, a relatively fixed syllabic poetic form similar to Japanese haiku and tanka. For Nirvana contains 108 Zen sijo poems (108 representing the number of klesas, or defilements, that one must overcome to attain enlightenment). These transfixing works play with traditional religious and metaphysical themes and include a number of story sijo, a longer, more personal style that is one of Cho Oh-Hyun s major innovations. Kwon Youngmin, a leading scholar of sijo, provides a contextualizing introduction, and in his afterword, Heinz Insu Fenkl reflects on the unique challenges of translating the collection.
