Book of the Week: A New Moon

feingold_newmooncoverBruce Feingold has a gentle way with haiku, with often a child-like tone, even as he covers turf from California to Maui to Tibet, and content from puppies to psychoanalysis. The charming illustrations by Eona are a good match in this work from 2004 (Red Moon Press).

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

yoga
unfolding
my mind

switchbacks
I lose my way on the trail
—cairns lead me back

startled puppy
barks ferociously—
aboriginal mask

in a distant mist . . .
children skip stones
on an old pond

transparent day moon—
a green sea turtle carries its grace
to white coral

a wayworn traveler
slips into hot water . . .
a new moon

  1. A mixture of fun but crafted senryu and finely attuned haiku:

    *

    awake at midnight
    my two year old fondles
    his new lunch box

    *

    featherless chick –
    a yellow jacket crawls in
    a hollow eye socket

    *

    This book is well worth visiting, and revisiting.

    kind regards,

    Alan
