Book of the Week: a translucent moon

brady_atranslucentmooncoverBrett Brady has been musician, poet, director and author in his varied career. His haiku is probably best described as sono-mama, “things just as they are,” but his take on the “isness” is much informed by his cheeky sense of humor, and a gentle way with things and people, much in evidence in his latest volume (Finishing Line Press, 2013).

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.

in the clouds
the crown of a giant
redwood

nude beach . . .
everyone’s got something
to hide

ex-monk
raking gently over
the sandtrap

she scoops up the moon
—cupped in a waterlily—
just to pour it out

an orchid
more beautiful
in her palm

gray beach . . .
a stray dog responds
to the wrong name

  1. Congratulations, brett!!! And thanks for your contributions to Best 100 Hooked on Haiku of 2014. I hope you will be entering the 2015 Contest as well, which has begun, but probably won’t really pick up momentum until after the ballot talley for 2014 in September.

    1. The idea that we recognize him would
      draw away from his purpose or means
      to give us the experience. That being said,
      the ability and heart to doing what he is so
      gifted and giving might edge on the ridge of
      uniqueness. rare gem

      the music to float the seance of his “words”
      help the experience wonderfully. thanks 2u2
