Book of the Week: Bug Haiku

Open as he was to the beauty and enchantment of the world of insects, James Hackett published this charmingly illustrated collection of Bug Haiku to open it to our eyes in its multifarious business. It is our Book of the Week.

 

The fleeing sandpipers                                                                            turn about suddenly                                                                                  and chase back the sea!

 

A long line of web                                                                                        unseen, but for the shifting stretches                                                    that return the sun

 

The frightened crawdad runs                                                                  facing his danger head on –                                                                      while in reverse!
