Yotsumono in Hedgerow

Mine and Marcus Liljedahl’s yotsumono Ginko for two has been published in Hedgerow: a journal of small poetry, issue 66. This excellent journal, edited by Caroline Skanne is a weekly online poetry journal, dedicated to publishing an eclectic mix of new and established voices. It’s the first time a yotsumono (four verse renku) by myself and Marcus is published as we only recently have started to write together.

Min och Marcus Liljedahls yotsumono Ginko for two, (Ginko för två), har publicerats i nummer 66 av Hedgerow: en journal för kortpoesi. Denna underbara poesitidskrift, som ges ut av Caroline Skanne kommer ut varje vecka och syftar till att publicera en eklektisk mix av nya och etablerade röster. Det är första gången som en yotsumono (renku med fyra verser) av mig och Marcus publiceras eftersom vi nyligen börjat skriva tillsammans.

Ginko For Two

ginko for two  
inside my winter coat  
a butterfly flits

in the pale landscape
soft footsteps to a slow dance

first snow flake  
whirling with the last note  
of a music box  

breaking through frozen mist
a flow of inspiration
