Book of the Week: Weathergrams

reynolds_weathergramsLloyd Reynolds was one of Gary Snyder’s professors at Reed College, possibly the person who introduced Snyder to haiku, and a lifelong devotee of calligraphy, which talent he used to create his weathergrams—haiku strips hung on trees— and this beautiful book (Society for Italic Handwriting, 1972).

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

Dewdrops, what’s your hurry?
A few inches of puddle — miles of sky
Starlight moonlight sunlight — & we still bump into things
A night owl swooped by — or did it?
Fir cones think fir forests a sure thing
Years ago we climbed that mountain now hidden in mist
