Wasp on the Prayer Flag (2021)
This is Maeve’s fifth collection with Alba Publishing. It chronicles the years from 2018-2021 in haiku and senryu. Rooted in Ireland and its varied landscapes, with some ‘postcards’ from the UK and Europe, this collection celebrates the inspiration and consolation of nature and the durability of human connections. Once again we experience O’Sullivan’s keen eye and her skilful combination of karumi (lightness of touch) with depth of feeling.
