Today’s Book of the Week is A Ribbon of Silver Thread, by Joseph Kirschner, published in 1995–a collection of twenty nature haiku in a slightly outmoded style, with an interesting description by the author of his method of composition.
a ribbon of silver thread
tightens about my heart
entwined by tendrils
the stone wall’s cracks
chill November winds
grip an old barn,
dancers twirl faster . . .
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
