Overview

Part meditation, part reflection, part nostalgia in remembering human frailty, Avrom's haikus tell the story of a life lived in deep consciousness of the ordinary with "an astonished heart." As a reader, I was stopped in my tracks frequently by the divine insights so many of his haikus express. Avrom's Flowers of Emptiness: Imaginal Haiku does not avoid facing the blisters also gathered in his life's journey, informed so elegantly by Buddhist wisdom and practice. I loved reading them and delighted further in rereading them. Haikus, like all poetry, are to be reread, especially aloud. They live on a deeper level when heard. Let them resonate within you.
