Book of the Week: Bare Earth



As the title Bare Earth indicates, Paul Cordeiro’s collection of haiku and tanka, a chapbook from 2013 and our Book of the Week, tends to stay close to home, and to derive its charm from close observations that find unusual angles on the familiar:


full barbershop
the nature strip
needs cutting


backdoor garden
a housefly wipes its feet
inside the lily


autumn quiet
the beagle chews
a bookmark to shreds


You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

Do you have a chapbook published 2010 or earlier you would like featured as a Book of the Week? Contact us for details.
