About the book
Watersmeet is a group of people in Hobart who write and share haiku.
All Watersmeet members have had haiku published in a wide variety of print and on-line journals. Some have won prizes and commendations for their haiku and haiku-related works.
The poems in this book express the responses of the individuals to their environment. They range from the city streets to the mountains, the beaches and forests that make up this diverse and beautiful part of the world.
'The haiku in this collection are like shot silk, lined with ever-shifting gauze. There are no weak haiku in the book. Every page, every poem, offers marvels of observation. The language sings, even where it may disconcert. Here are poets concerned with the everyday, with making the reader aware of the environment, with making true communication with the reader. There is, I think, a journey here for anyone - for everyone. The paths are all clearly marked in this fine collection.' - from a review by Patricia Prime in Stylus
