The poems have chosen to recount the story of their lives. They confide how they were conceived in moments of utter desperation or times of languorous lovemaking. How they grew up on hunger or abundance, and the way they abandoned the empty husk of their poet to search for something more fulfilling. In this book of 61 haibun, Paresh Tiwari (Pushcart Prize nominee) dwells in love, memory, family, pain, war, rebellion, dreams, mutiny and mundanity, exploring new facets by shifting meanings and capturing the unknown in his words.

Keepers is a delightful romp through religion, rebellion and rambunctiousness. French’s haibun offer an artful fusion of memory tied to parenting her two boys along with her imagination steeped in regional awareness of rural Alabama where she has lived for the last thirty years. The haibun capture the authentic voice of 11-year-old JT Blankenship and are reminiscent of Twain’s Huck Finn.
