Envy the Seasons

Envy the Seasons brings together haiku from three acclaimed Scottish writers – Hamish Whyte, Iain Maloney and James McGonigal. These affirming poems of everyday life and nature are variously
caught through the lens of the French poet Paul Bergèse (Hamish Whyte), on a pilgrimage to the snows of Bennachie from Japan (Iain Maloney), and in Scots via the Spanish surrealist Ramón Gómez de la Serna (James McGonigal).

Moving, illuminating, and approachable, these haiku are best enjoyed “like you drink / your coffee / one sip / no more – / then you get it.”
