Book of the Week: Dark Leaves: A Book of Haiku by Carol Dagenhardt

Carol’s dedication “for my father” introduces the moving haiku in this chapbook and some examples include:

dark lines
the long road leading
to the farm

old barn
how the light got in it
your secret place

your hand
erasing a bad dream
dark leaves

hospital room
tracing the veins
in his hands

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