 In Poems

Seven of Andrew’s poems have been published in the September 2016 issue of Quadrant. The poems are: “Thinking of You”, “The Festooned Pine”, “Omikuji Blossom”, “Pact”, “Travelling”, “Winter, Wisconsin” and “A Little Herd”.

“The Festooned Pine” also appears in Andrew’s latest book, Kyoto Sakura Tanka, which is composed of poems (tanka) and photographs of Kyoto in the cherry blossom (sakura) season. “The Festooned Pine” is reproduced below, with the photograph that accompanies it in the book:







The Festooned Pine

At a Shinto shrine,
white paper slips, omikuji,
knotted to a pine—
sacred ballots of the kami,
forming a strange origami.
