Martin Lucas 1962-2014

I am sorry to report that the body of Martin Lucas has been discovered on a beach at St Anne’s in Lancashire, northwest England. Police are not treating it as a suspicious death.

a winding path
from the banks of the beck
into bracken scent

frostmelt – just the disappearing shadow of a wren

– Martin Lucas, both from Where the River Goes


Here are some of his haiku from the Presence website. My sympathies to his family and friends.
