haiku and haibun
by Ken Jones
Stallion's Crag is a 6,000 word haiku-studded prose poem (haibun) set in the wilds of Plynlimon in mid-Wales. Ken Jones is a leading exponent of the Western revival of this ancient Japanese genre.
"The rock musician John Cale's famous question, 'What's Welsh for Zen?' could be answered in two words: Ken Jones. He has planted a seed from Japan in the soil of mid-Wales; the fruits of that endeavour are these compelling and distinctive prose poems."
