Book of the Week: Wayfarers: A Chapbook of Haiku by Canadian Poet Roland Packer

Roland lives in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He is a musician in various roles and always has a haiku notebook close at hand. He is featured in the 2018 international haiku collection Echoes 2: The New Resonance 20th Anniversary Update. Selected haiku from Wayfarers include:

the fiddler counts
without losing a beat
loose change

a scrawled note
instead of a coin
ferryman

a tv preacher
lays his hands on the screen
white noise

You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library and please share your favorite poem from the book with us.
