smoothly written haiku, nicely illustrated too

Linda Swift’s smoothly written haiku are illustrated with gorgeous full-color photos and montages in her short book (47 pages) Song of Every Season. Pale winds blow through spring to the bean fields of summer, and neat black-white-and-gray patterns add punctuation. The metaphors and descriptions are beautiful, from strobing sunlight to red and white streamers in the long black tresses of an evening interstate. An Indian women sells gems by the freeway in a well-drawn haiku set, red desert sand around and blue shadowed mountains beyond. Then autumn’s ghosts and goblins prowl lightly among the whispered warnings of winter while trees’ gold fingers reach to blue autumn sky. Spring’s seeds wait, jonquil stems pushing from their warm bed, while squirrels dig and the first forsythia trembles and the seasons turn again.
Song of  Every Season is a lovely little book and a beautiful reason to love haiku.
 
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find this when it was free.
