The Dry Bones - Paul Chambers (Second Printing)
The Dry Bones
“These haiku are not just haiku, they are poems that exhibit openings to higher consciousness. The haiku of Paul Chambers is both a haiku of self-awareness but it is also a poetry of cosmic awareness, exemplifying one’s own mortality as well as one’s own sense of eternity in the present moment. However, Paul Chambers can also be described as a modern-day Issa too, when his vision so exquisitely portrays the suchness in seeing things just as they are, and releasing his readers on a journey of quiet magnificence.”
“For anyone who thinks the world of haiku is one of the wistful whispers, this collection is the antidote. Each of Paul Chambers’ haiku is a breath of cold wind cutting across high moorland, bringing us acutely to our senses. Read together, they create a landscape alive with nonhuman presences, a sense of deep time coded in their vivid moments.”
