Journey to the Centre of the Earth [183]

Lately, I’ve been working on some erasures of the first book I ever read, Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Words have been hard to come by this year, so it’s been a pleasure and a relief to make poems by finding rather than writing.



At the moment I’m rereading The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Matsuo Bashō. It’s made me fall in love with haiku all over again.


Early autumn now –
under the trees a collage
of orange and green.
