“The Mountain Explorer’s Haiku” and “Untitled #6” by Abigail Van Kirk
The Mountain Explorer’s Haiku
Brumous seasons for
reckless pursuits of daydreams,
Winter’s days pass halcyon and sunny
monotonous and lovely
and I long for melancholy sluggishness and seething chill
to shroud me in its perfect white and grey.

This in turn inspires her to capture the simple cadences of life around her, from human nature to the nature surrounding her, and her work has been published by US Represented, Spare Cat Press, and elsewhere.
