The kissing bridge is the debut collection of Stephen

Toft, one of the finest talents among the new

generation of British haiku poets.


“. . . poems of subtlety, emotional complexity

and existential purity.”

—Martin Lucas author of Stepping Stones: a way into haiku


“Currents of tenderness and danger twine through the deeply felt haiku in the kissing bridge, touching love, loss, the ordinary, and the exceptional. These are finely wrought poems, powerful in their com-

pression. I expect to return often to them.”

—Peggy Willis Lyles, author of To Hear the Rain
