About this Book

In Daily Accord presents a selection of short poems written on a daily basis over a twenty month period. Loosely based on Haiku and Senryu forms they are instanter reductions of Golden's quotidian reality. A variety of voices, and echoes from the greater world, move with the narrator through the months. The tension lies not in the drama of what is unfolded but in the obliquely configured lines of a charted life and the quizzical insights that are brought forth.

Read a sample from this book


The most casual of days
Constructing the template of memory
The bathwater overflowing

Scent of fresh lemon balm on my fingers
Rose nettle tips at my feet
The comfort and unity of striving things

Two swallows
Above a barking dog
