Moon on Wild Grasses, with illustrations by the author, shows the unsuspected scope of a very concise, precise poetic form. Keith Garebian’s haiku encompass a wide range of themes in a vividly elegant style that combines the pictorial with the passionate, erotic or reflective. Nature, empirical experience, the self, love, death, and grief are captured with a perceptive, sensitive eye.

Keith Garebian is an award-winning author of 17 books and over 1200 articles, reviews, features, and interviews in more than a hundred newspapers, journals, magazines, and anthologies. A frequent book reviewer for the Globe and Mail, his previous books of poetry are Reservoir of Ancestors, Frida: Paint Me as a Volcano, Blue: The Derek Jarman Poems, Children of Ararat, and the chapbook Samson’s Hair and Other Satirical Fantasies. His poetry has been translated into French and Armenian, and some of his awards include the Mississauga Arts Award (2000 and 2008), the Lakeshore Arts and Scarborough Arts Council Poetry Award for Poetry (2003), the Dan Sullivan Memorial Poetry Award (Runner-up, 2006), the Canadian Authors Association (Niagara Branch) Poetry Award (2009), and the Naji Naaman Literary Honour Prize (2009). He has twice made the long-list for the Re-Lit Award for Poetry. He lives in Mississauga.

"Keith Garebian writes with solicitousness, rage, and pure confidence in his resources...Garebian places poetry at the service of his identity – personal, political, and human – and draws vitally from the store of imaginative vigour. The poems in Children of Ararat are creations of a man with an ’optic heart’ – a man who belongs to the people, to his father’s people, as well as to a wider span of citizenry intent on the pursuit of transparency, justice, and human renewal."  Elana Wolff, Open Book Toronto
