“The Stone Skippers” by Ian Burgham is a collection of love poems. The poems themselves were written with very little regard to traditional structures. The poems can be read as a minimalistic approach to impressionistic short stories. The poems draw broad strokes of stories while letting the reader fill in the details. The poem forms range from the traditional forms to some which are borderline short proses.

The poems invoke many different emotion with most of them seemingly gray but dashed with a bright yellow of hope. I can’t help but think of foggy days while reading it, illustrated beautifully on the cover of the book. This book definitely goes into my to-reread list of books when I am trying to get a sense of romantic love. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0973864583, Paperback)

Love and loss, two frequently exhausted themes of poetry, find fresh life under the pen of poet Ian Burgham. Through the poems in this collection, sadness and solitude become lenses for viewing the world’s beauty, and love is a territory that humanity maps with little skill. Indeed the very core of humanity is explored in the poems, set against the Canadian literary landscape and frequently returning to distances—those imposed upon oneself by desire or loss—and motifs of conversation. Approachable but affecting, the poems of this collection raise questions, and anwers for them, that the reader did not know they had.
