Book of the Week: a net of sunlight


Kirsty Karkow writes evocatively of her adopted home in Maine, but so tellingly that people from anywhere might identify with them. This volume, self-published in 2002, can be appreciated anywhere there is field and stream, sea and sunlight.

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

Do you have a chapbook published 2009 or earlier you would like featured as a Book of the Week? Contact us for details.

Haiku featured in the Book of the Week Archive are selected by Jim Kacian, following a concept first explored by Tom Clausen, and are used with permission.

honeymoon we wade into the current of a great river

gnarled oak my journey to the hills starts in mist
empty shelf dusty outlines of books my parents read
gale force wind the shriek of gulls flying in place
winter stars— a wild goose tucks its head under a wing
anchored a net of sunlight in the shallows
