This week’s Book of the Week is Paddle Sounds, a themed collection of serene moments on the water celebrated in haiku and haibun, edited by Susan Bond. It contains haiku by R. D. Williams, Susan Bond, Paul MacNeil, Matt Morden, Yu Chang, et alia, and a lovely, long haibun by Paul MacNeil on the joys of canoeing in quiet water.
the beaver floats
we hold our breath, gliding
over the submerged branch
clings to a bullrush –
a gust of wind
