Brett Brady has been musician, poet, director and author in his varied career. His haiku is probably best described as sono-mama, “things just as they are,” but his take on the “isness” is much informed by his cheeky sense of humor, and a gentle way with things and people, much in evidence in his latest volume (Finishing Line Press, 2013).
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

in the clouds the crown of a giant redwood
nude beach . . . everyone’s got something to hide
ex-monk raking gently over the sandtrap
she scoops up the moon —cupped in a waterlily— just to pour it out
an orchid more beautiful in her palm
gray beach . . . a stray dog responds to the wrong name
