About

Haiku is a setting of 21 haiku written by Alan Wells, published in The New Zealand Haiku Anthology, edited by Cyril Childs (Wellington: The New Zealand Poetry Society Inc., 1993), and used with the kind permission of the poet.

Haiku, was originally written for instrumental ensemble to celebrate Douglas Lilburn's eightieth birthday, was rearranged and given its first performance by the Dunedin-based Lyric Trio (Ana Good, Rebecca Maurice, Joyce Whitehead). The haiku are concisely set; they draw on imagery both local and universal.
