This week’s Book of the Week is Paddle Sounds, a themed collection of serene moments on the water celebrated in haiku and haibun, edited by Susan Bond. It contains haiku by R. D. Williams, Susan Bond, Paul MacNeil, Matt Morden, Yu Chang, et alia, and a lovely, long haibun by Paul MacNeil on the joys of canoeing in quiet water.

another log
fading light
-Cindy Zackowitz

we hold our breath, gliding
over the submerged branch
-Laura Young

red-winged blackbird
clings to a bullrush –
a gust of wind
-Susan Bond
