holding on to summer

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 7:34 pm


We have had the best weather of the summer over the past week

here in Schenectady (blue skies, not too hot, not too humid).  I’m

very reluctant to think about the all-too-imminent arrival of cold

weather here in Upstate New York.

 

So, let’s find a piece of nature and take a stroll with our Honored Guest

paul m, using his award-winning book finding the way.

 




summer’s end—


riding a borrowed bicycle


past the graveyard


 


 





 








noisy jays


blueberries twist easily


from their stems


 


 


parkBench


 


 


no moon as yet


mosquitoes rising


over a field


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


last picnic


stones along the riverbed


give way to sand


 


 


 


paul m from finding the way: haiku and field notes (Press Here, 2002) 



I’m sorry to say that this wonderful little book, which won the  coyote moon sf


Haiku Society of America’s 2003 Merit Award for the Best Book of


Haiku published in 2002, is currently out of print.  I shall be sharing


many of its 55 haiku here at f/k/a, and will let you know when the 2nd 


printing is available.  The book  is reviewed by Tom Clausen in Modern


Haiku.
