Book of the Week: Pail in Hand

deodhar_pailinhandcoverAngelee Deodhar, more than any other single person, is responsible for bringing Indian haiku to the attention of the world community. She has served as poet, editor, organizer, translator and representative around the world for this cause. These poems, privately published in 2000 for the World Haiku Festival held in London, show an engagement with the human world and a sensibility well-attuned to the genre.

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

Do you have a chapbook published 2009 or earlier you would like featured as a Book of the Week? Contact us for details.

acres of darkness outside, inside then a firefly
from the shadows ceaseless as song of cicadas sex-show sex-show
in the old photo sepia snow
an I.V. line anchors me to the monitor thoughts still wander
his saffron robes pale before the nasturtiums
fading into the tan of her shoulder a tattooed butterfly
