Deflection
“I feel astonished, happy, and lucky to have discovered Deflection. Roberta Beary’s poetry is animated with principles of Haiku, illustrative of the form but reliant on other traditions. Her work shows that a gifted poet can assert all manner of styles within a poem, sharing interests of each to give us a new breed. It’s a bright sunshiny day when we get surprising, evocative, powerful poetry coined from the gold standard of ancients. These poems are vibrant with lived experience and shockingly beautiful with new expression. The lines and poetic forms are prisms from the classical, and lyrical, to distilled Asian thought. This book is essential in furthering the art of poetry.”
