Poem 231 – Swell Haiku & Guest Poem by Mark Bradley

Swell Haiku

The full moon is near
I arch into its full swell
Lick the dark it moves


Today is the 79th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid. In 1942, almost 5,000 Canadian soldiers, alongside British and American allies, landed on the shores around the towns of Dieppe, Puys and Pourville in occupied France. Local artist, activist and poet Mark Bradley has honoured his father, who was on those very shores, in the following poem: For My Father and His Comrades, Reunion 1976.
