Cool Announcement: New Release, echoes of flight by Jane Williams

My Dear Friends:

I'm happy to share with you this exciting news: NeverEnding Story contributor Jane Williams just published her first book of Japanese short form poetry, echoes of flight: haiku & senryu. "Jane Williams’s first collection of haiku delights with all the insight and generosity that her readers admire in her longer works of poetry. In distillations that are alive to the small and fleeting moments of life and the echoes they ring in the heart, echoes of flight is joyous and life-affirming and a welcome addition to Australian haiku literature." ( Lyn Reeves, Vice President, Australian Haiku Society).

About the Author:

Jane Williams is an Australian poet based in Tasmania

Selected Haiku and Senryu:

low tide
in the gull's footprints
echoes of flight

spring afternoon
the paperbark sheds
layers of light

the rusted-out car
frog song

birds shape-shifting
become one

skinny dipping
my sister leads me
into my fiftieth year

writer's block
crisscrossing my keyboard
the same ant?
