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.
