here i am
small poems by Zee Zahava
A collection of haiku, senryu & other small poems.
Zee Zahava measures the universe in small poems. With a loving tone she invites you, the frog, and even the ant, to share her intriguing perspective. Don’t be surprised if perhaps her happiness grows wings, a tail, or “travels backwards,” but she will not vanish, and neither will you. Like the moon in her poems, she keeps her eyes on us all.
—Kath Abela Wilson
Zee Zahava often begins the day with a morning walk, where she welcomes the possibilities of the new day and makes peace with the eternal now. As she notes in one of the small poems in this collection, she searches “each puddle for signs of magic.” Such is the heart and spirit of this intimate collection — in turns poignant, humorous, self-aware, curious, and warm. This is a collection to embrace.
The small poems in “here i am,” by Zee Zahava, sprouting from home and neighborhood, have warmth and humor that connect the reader even with the moon.
