Beyond the Grave

Beyond the GraveI finally got a copy of Beyond the Grave: Contemporary Afterlife Haiku (Middle Island Press, 2015), edited by Robert Epstein. Usually I submit previously published material to Robert Epstein’s anthologies, but this time I decided to try writing something brand new, in this case haiku about the afterlife. I was pleasantly surprised the editor chose four previously unpublished pieces, which you can read below. Many thanks to Robert Epstein for including my work in yet another of his anthologies.

 

turning over a stone the afterlife

blue dragonfly
shimmer of the afterlife
in its wings

afterlifejacket

some distant night
the crickets you hear
could be my heartbeat

all haiku above by Chad Lee Robinson, originally published in Beyond the Grave: Contemporary Afterlife Haiku (Middle Island Press, 2015)
