Autumn Journal was an exercise written to explore poetry as process; A way to explore my locations and emotions in a three week period around the start of Autumn. Many decisions were made ahead of time; I find it interesting to hear other's process around this and so here's what they were:
I want to acknowledge as inspiration The Narrow Road To The Deep North by Matsuo Bashō, the writing of Kate Camp and my brother's prodigious journal. I also want to acknowledge Kāi Tahu and Kāti Māmoe, the tākata whenua of the land I live off and have written around.
