Award-winning writer, Dave Lewis, has recently published his eighteenth book, a collection of modern, haiku-like moments written over the last few years. Published in Oct 2018 by Publish & Print.
This is his second full ‘haiku‘ collection, although others can be found in some of Lewis’s other books.
“This collection of modern, haiku-like moments is an absolute joy. Beautifully honest, these short, simple poems are extremely easy to read yet are constructed with great artistry and wisdom. Lewis’s poetry is honest, relatable, eloquent yet quite breath taking. He possesses a rare vision and this collection will surely bring any reader to an enlightened state of self-awareness. Powerfully expressed he captures both universal human experience and many of those particular struggles that we face at some point in our lives.
Lewis should be at the forefront of a poetry renaissance and this stunning work will breathe new life into the art form, communicating, as he does, complex emotions subtly weaved within razor-sharp observations – he distils life down to a bare minimum. A book to dip into over and over again and one which reveals more with each read.” – Andrew Davies
A great little present for anyone interested in poetry, nature and our place in the world.
ocean art class
driftwood, seaweed, shells
walking from Tenby to Penally
silence after sighs
the river still dripping
from the kingfisher
spilled across a blue and white sky
questioning my sanity each Tuesday
the FTSE up
on the wine bar TV
more ‘Spice’ victims in the park
buttercups and daisies shake
as the old horse ambles along
– summer field
getting to know myself better
through the truck window
garden spider weaving
an old world map
autumn dew becoming sea
