my little dragonfly hunter
I wonder how far
he has gone today…
The haiku is by Chiyo-ni, who was born in 1703 and was writing about the death of her son.
I wrote the piece to be included in the album “A Last Sunset, A Celebration of Candy Lozier”. Candy was an ambient composer and founder of the Studio 4632 netlabel, which released an album of my music in 2018. A second album was scheduled to be released but she passed away before that could happen.
Little Dragonfly Hunter was written for string quartet.
