Book of the Week: a gate left open



Light and whimsical, quiet and keenly observant, Alice Frampton is a haiku writer from the Pacific northwest who is also active in planning and attending the annual Seabeck Haiku Conferences. A Gate Left Open, our Book of the Week, is her first chapbook of haiku, published by Jim Kacian’s Red Moon Press in 2009.

a hat bobs
in the wheat


the crouch
of a grasshopper


afternoon moon
a horseshoe rings
the metal stake

  1. What a terrific book.
    I had forgotten what a wonderful poet Frampton is.

    I agree with Ferris Gilli, and kept saying, “I wish I’d written that”.
    (Maybe I will).
