Books of the Week are taken from The Haiku Foundation Digital Library, which currently has 1100 PDFs of haiku material for your research and reading pleasure.
Our Book of the Week is For a Moment, by Michael Dylan Welch, published in 2009 in the prestigious Hexagram Series by Kings Road Press. Welch is one of the stalwarts of American haiku. His works are almost always sharp, concrete renditions of original moments, and this collection is a fine example of his skillful work.

a feather blows
from the empty nest
