is the twelfth book in the Two Autumns anthologies
series and is marvelously manufactured, beginning with the
cover with its attractive photograph, and continuing with
its well printed three poems to a page on quality paper.
Four poets are represented with twelve poems for each. A
sampling haiku from each:
a bowl of owl feathers
on the bedside table
I only think about it
a hometown visit
a special goat cheese
the smell of gym socks.
colliding with waves
the end of the book are biographies of the poets, who are
distinguished members of the Haiku Poets of Northern California.
