Book of the Week: The Sky Is All There – Haiku by Cathy Drinkwater Better

Cathy Drinkwater Better is a poet, editor, author, journalist, and humorist. Her haiku and other forms of poetry have appeared in journals and anthologies in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain. She has also published trade books for children and adults as well as a collection of haiku, the moon tonight. Her biography in the World Haiku Association states that “Cathy has a second-degree black belt in karate, and she’s not afraid to use it.” 

Examples of her haiku include:

the birthday card
from my mother-in-law
my name spelled wrong again

mourning dove
in tune
with the windchimes

breaststroke together —
the creaking water wheel
at the old mill pond

not stepping on it:
patch of moonlight
on the bedroom rug

after the harvest
grape pickers
sip Cabernet Sauvignon

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