Book of the Week: Song of the Water

biliarskaGinka Biliarska reminds us that it’s never a bad thing to get reacquainted with beginner’s mind, in this case from the experts themselves, in this charming bilingual anthology of children’s haiku and painting from Bulgaria (angoboy, 2004).

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

    a ray of sunlight
    is chasing the rainbow
    to make it a pearl
