Iceberg Relief by Daniel Wade

Iceberg Relief tells the story of the cargo ship MV Iceberg I and its 24 crew members, who were held in captivity between March 2010 and December 2012, after their vessel was hijacked by Somali pirates.

The chapbook is written as a sequence of haibun, a poetic format originating in Japan. Properly defined, a haibun is a short pose poem prefaced by a haiku; it typically describes its subject matter in a pithy, almost journalistic, fashion. Many of the poems in this e-book are either based or directly quoted from actual statements and observations made by surviving members of the Iceberg crew following their release from captivity.
