Book of the Week: Whoops



Today’s Book of the Week is Whoops, a volume of haiku and other short form poems in which English haijin Stewart Metcalfe expresses a sensitivity to nature, and a talent for capturing the images to communicate it.


mother-in-law’s tongue
casts a shadow
on the kitchen wall


water shimmering
in sunlight
ducks ride the waves


modern times
the steeple
peeps over the scaffolding
