Book of the Week: Blue Sky



Handmade chapbooks of haiku were once more popular than now. Nova Scotia artist and poet Suezan Aikins published more than a few, and our Book of the Week, Blue Sky, from 1995, is a fine example of her work as poet, illustrator, and self publisher.


the last red leaf


icy seas
dawn fire mist
dances the reef


the pine’s
slow spiraling
into stars

  1. Wow–I’ve read this 2+ times and it’s still very fresh. So many wonderful descriptions here! And some excellent two-liners that really show what that form can do. Thanks for making this available.
