Poetry: ‘Japan’ by Billy Collins

A gentle poem based on the Japanese ‘haiku’ form to start the week.

Billy Collins, the American poet, has a masterful turn of phrase, but is also accessible. He isn’t hiding his concepts under a series of impenetrable structure, but using format as a way to unlock meaning.

Hope you’re in tip-top form! Happy Monday!
