Our Book of the Week, by Paul Miller, is Called Home, his second volume of haiku, which won a Haiku Society of America Merit Book Award in 2006. Now editor of Modern Haiku, Paul is recognized as one of the leading voices in English language haiku. In this volume, Paul successfully frames his haiku around moving his family from California to a new home in an eastern state, reversing its original migration, rediscovering his past, and adding to his American identity.
fog on the bridge
this small truck
for all our belongings
leave my body
to wild dogs
a stone wall luminous
with map lichen
