Slow Growing Ivy is the second tanka collection by David Terelinck, published in 2014.
The collection contains individual tanka, tanka sequences, and prose journeys.
Perfect bound, full gloss paperbook of 112 pages. The collection is sensitively illustrated by Sylvia Amoedo.
The following is from the back-cover endorsement by US tanka poet, Tom Clausen:
“Moving us from the moon and the stars to the inner workings of the human condition, the indelible tanka of David Terelinck are inspired by a life carefully considered and beautifully conceived. With a poignant and deft use of the five line form Terelinck provides us with a blueprint to find our way across the threshold of emotionally complex and challenging feelings. Using language that is inimitable and wonderfully memorable Terelink’s tanka do what the best poetry should do; take us on a voyage of discovery and awareness of the ephemeral to a place that is lasting in our heart.”
~ Tom Clausen, author of A Work of Love and Growing Late
