Book of the Week: Waking Echoes – La nuit d’eau / The Water’s Night: A Book of French Haiku by Micheline Beaudry

In Haikupedia, we learn that Micheline Beaudry was born June on 29, 1942 in Montréal, Québec, Canada. She has contributed to haiku anthologies, published three haikai collections, as well as anthologies of French Canadian haiku, a tanka collection, a compendium of the work of Japanese women poets and an erotic haiku anthology.

Examples of her haiku in French and English include: 

tourterelle triste
sur la rambarde de metal
les mains d’une femme

mourning dove
on the guardrail
a woman’s hands

pleine lune
faire d’une nuit noire
une nuit tres bleue

full moon
making a black night
very blue

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