Crossing the Mind
Midwest Book Review
Senryu is another unique form of Japanese poetry, kin to the more well known haiku. "Crossing the Mind" is a collection of hundreds of senryu poems from Bruce Adams. Reflecting on a conversation with a dying scientist about regrets in life, Adams offers his own insights on the subject through this rarely seen, but exquisite form of poetry. "Crossing the Mind" is food for the mind - enthusiastically recommended. A sample: "Talking garbage about/everyone is easiest/done from the dumps."
