Poems of a West Coast Pariah
Lois C. Henderson, author
Poems of a West Coast Pariah: Modern Haiku 1 is a collection of modern haiku (which liberates the form in terms of number of syllables per line and number of lines) on various aspects of Lois C. Henderson’s existence on the West Coast of South Africa, during the late summer of 2021. Living on the banks of the Berg River, in a small fishing village known as Velddrif, she explores the environment and her thoughts about the life around her, both in a positive and in a negative light. The sections of the book consist of Preface, Nature, The Daily Round, Social Life and Challenges, The Pandemic, Poems of Anguish and Torment and Personal Relationships. She intends to publish more volumes of her verse in the months and years to come.
