Winter to Winter

01

 

Browning autumn woods

Bright leaves like painted metal

Beginning to rust.

Just one of 365 days of haiku written by Jack Kraichnan  during, and after, his daily 5 mile walk in the Mount Monadnock  foothill region of New Hampshire. If you, or someone you know, loves haiku this book is an excellent gift. I have loads of small tags marking favorites only to find new ones each time I open it.

Snowfields on mountain

Like white markings on the flanks

Of sleeping  grey cat.

How descriptive is that? You can see the field in your mind, and almost smell the crisp winter air. This book is a gem of haiku that offers a soothing chance at reflection every time you open it.
