"Winter garden,
The moon thinned to a thread,
Insects singing."
- Matsuo Basho

Poetry is like seeing another's soul, a little foreign, a little familiar, and ultimately food. This is the poetry of a beautiful soul. In the spirit of the New Age Renaissance Republique, an incredible Chapbook of Haiku and Haiku-like poetry, of the Neo-classical, elegant with a sensibility of the spare, the idea of light and breath, Osmosis by Debarashi Mitra and Hawakal Publishers.

As if painting places out of time, places of memory, places of beauty, this poetry lives in the winter of a love affair. A trail of light through a tall window into a bare room, the still. The quiet of the poetry, in nature imagery is startling. A mastery of considered verse.


A nameless bird
circles overhead
and then disappears

becomes a poem."

A conversation with a lost or missing lover, the poetry is a dance with memory and a shadow in the corner of the room. A brilliant write in Neo-Classical Haiku, Osmosis by Debarashi Mitra.
