Gathering Dust
by David Rollins


reviewed by Robert Spiess

Gathering Dust by David Rollins; Hub Editions, Longholm,
East Bank,Wingland, Sutton Bridge, Spalding, Lincolnshire PE12 9YS, England;2001, 54 pp., paper (flat spined), £3.75, $7.50.


As with all Hub Editions chapbooks, Gathering Dust is very well printed and manufactured. Generally there are two haiku or senryu on a page. A sampling of two:

cold wind off the sea
striped deckchairs
flap emptily


empty bus station
the sound and shadow of
a single person walking

Although David Rollins is not well known in the U. S. he is making a name for himself in haiku in Great Britain.
