Book of the Week: Chalk Drawings

rohrig_chalkdrawingsCarolyne Rohrig and Marco Fraticelli utilized the septenga (a 7-link collaboration invented by Alexis Rotella and Ai Li) to create this chapbook to celebrate Haiku Canada Weekend 2007 (King’s Road Press). Carolyne’s verses are the 2-liners in this complete example, “Wishing.”

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

Do you have a chapbook published 2010 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 THF president Jim Kacian, and are used with permission.


my daughter and I wishing on the same star
her calloused knees from years of praying
seniors’ residence a discarded computer in the garbage
uprooted roses that didn’t climb the fence
lipstick taste dressing up for the wake
fourth cup of coffee another round of condolences
all night long the wind chimes without her
