First in a series of four, this beautiful volume offers 100 of John Straley's spring-themed haiku with cover illustration and artwork by Norm Campbell. These poems are based on moments and emotions experienced in Spring - in John's front yard facing the ocean in Sitka, Alaska.
Pale sun, early spring
listening for the bird
I cannot see.
"I have not come close to mastering the making of these little poems, and I suspect that the task is akin to a spiritual quest: one without an ending." -- John Straley
