    I really love this one! Thank you for sharing your friend's beautiful poems with us, Kokuu. Although I didn't know her, I'm glad this life got to coincide with hers on this spinning marble around the sun.

    My friend, the haiku poet Jan Benson died earlier this week. I heard from her family last night although feared for the worst when her social media accounts were all closed down after the weekend.

    Anyway, here are some of her poems, and one of mine I wrote for her earlier this year.

    migrant moon...
    walking from weeds
    into weeds

    remeasuring bigotry Christchurch mosque

    the pond
    holds a half moon
    theology of bones

    tidal flats
    the quarter-tones
    of a sandpiper

    crescent moon and her silk blouse a zephyr swells

    the thrum
    of stars in my bones
    hadron collider


    Mine:

    the resilience
    of violets
    grandmother moon
