David Lloyd’s Nine Joys

There’s much joy in haiku, not just in writing it, but in the subjects that haiku celebrate, no matter whether they are light or dark, beautiful or stark. On the Essays page, in the Favourite Haiku seciton, I’ve just posted “Nine Joys,” a short appreciation for the preface and a sample poem from David Lloyd’s 1974 haiku book The Circle.
