Book of the Week: Haiku

poyckcover1Marian Poyck is a Dutch haiku poet, but her brief collection Haiku (self-published, no date) is in English. The book is a masterpiece of design, a single sheet of paper folded and cut into a miniature collection, with an attractive chemise and a handsome emboss on the title page. The poems are keenly observed and incisively wrought, making for a very pleasing ensemble.

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

wintertime the cold of my watch penetrates my wrist
river landscape a flatboat, stately gliding through the grasslands
his inheritance: for every opportunity a suitable hat

  1. If anything shows that less is more then this is it – every haiku in this collection stabs home and is the sort to carry around with you and turn to whenever. One of the best books of the week on this site.
