Book of the Week: Isolation Street



This selection for the Book of the Week is Isolation Street, a topical response in 31 haiku to the condition of isolation imposed on us by Covid-19, by Swedish poet Marcus Liljedahl.


home at last
some dry leaves gather
in the hallway
white chapel
shadows of crows become
part of the stillness
quarantine moon
a long hard rain fills
the old wheel tracks

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