Book of the Week: Ikebana

 

 

Our Book of the Week is Ikebana, by the Romanian poet, Vasile Moldovan. As floral arrangements vary with the seasons, so Moldovan’s flower and plant haiku feature appropriate natural variations, arranged according to season. A collection about natural renewal that repays attention during these dark days.

 

Love story –
only a flower in the field,
and so many butterflies

 

 

Waiting for the suitors,
the heart of the amarylis
always wide open

 

 

Winter evening –
the copper beech’s leaves
lit by the snowfall

 

 

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