In early 2016, Resorts World Sentosa hosted ten Singapore poets at the SEA Aquarium, inviting them to write a series of haiku, a popular poetry form rooted in classical Japanese poetry, in response to the exhibits the group visited. The reflections of those poets are recorded in three languages (English, Mandarin, and Japanese) in Equatorial Calm, the first poetry anthology to include these three languages in Singapore’s publishing history. Each poet has contributed eight pieces to the anthology, which are accompanied by the artwork of Namiko Takahashi Chan-Lee.
