Robert Lovitt - Poetry & Such

a real son of the beats...

WHO STANDS AT THE TEMPLE GATES?

Softbound, 6”x 9”, 80 pages - Price: $14.00

In an attempt to “scratch at the truth of beauty squirreled away within his own journey” master haiku writer, Basho left us his classic - Narrow Road to the Deep North - a unique travel journal that combined both prose and haiku. Some 310 years later, with Basho’s ghost as his traveling companion, Lovitt - wearing size twelve shoes, follows those footsteps through the twisting ancient/modern roads of Japan. He presents here for us - this new accessible travel journal haibun- one that is dripping in reverent admiration for those who had preceded him down the narrow roads.

 

flying somewhere

a crow’s wing brushes against

the red maple leaves
