Book of the Week: By the Ocean


Marco Fraticelli has been writing haikai for 4 decades, and particularly humorous haiku. This short collection (King’s Road Press, 2009) shows him in good form on a theme that engages us all: the ocean, and what it does to us.

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.

beach house the hourglass filled with sand
first day of vacation building sandcastles
by the ocean reading perfumed magazines
barbecue the pork chops shaped like Africa
between each wave my children disappear
at the beach back to school sale
