Walking the Tideline, by Australian Lyn Reeves, is our Book of the Week. Seashores vary around the world. Some are so remote or inaccessible as to seldom or never be seen up close, but wherever accessible they are a magnet for the pensive walker. So much about the tideline draws us there, not least because it is a transition zone between land and sea, between the familiar and the unknown. For those not lucky enough to live near the sea, Lyn’s collection of haiku will transport you there.
into the wind
morning sunlight polishes the river silver
walking the tideline stopped in my tracks
by a shell
