2 poems in Quadrant

 In Poems






















The December 2014 issue of Quadrant contains two of Andrew’s poems – “Nijo Castle, Kyoto” and “Japanese Heron”. Each poem consists of three tanka. The third tanka of “Nijo Castle, Kyoto” is subtitled “The Interlocking Stones”:


The Interlocking Stones


Pieces of fretsaw-

cut plywood reassembled

to form a jigsaw–

that, in their neat interlock,

is the way the wall-stones look.
