The poetry magazine ‘Black Bough Poetry’ has just published ‘Japanese Garden’ by Iris Anne Lewis. Described by editor Matthew M. C. Smith as excellent imagist, precise, sharp poetry, ‘Japanese Garden’ was first conceived by a visit to a Japanese-style garden in the grounds of Warwick University.

‘Black Bough Poetry’ publishes micro-poems from across the world. Only the most compressed, the most pristine, the most vivid, make the cut. It takes its name and its ethos from a two-line poem from Ezra Pound.

In a Station of the Metro
The apparition of these faces in the crowd:
Petals on a wet, black bough.

‘Japanese Garden’, is published in issue 3, page 10, of the magazine, which you can find here.
