TIDEPOOLS is my new book of haiku illustrated with original nature photographs in a lovely, hard-bound volume. Inspired in part by the beautiful landscapes of California and the midwest, in part by visionary prayer experiences, my new poems provide images for spiritual reflection. In the first haiku sequence in the book, “Seasons,” I wrote about summertime:
green-leafed stalks, yellow corn cobs —
then, the tornado
The contrast between the peacefulness of the growing season and the destructiveness of the tornado, nature’s furious wind unleashed, provides a moment for meditation not only about nature but about the spiritual life.
I invite you to explore TIDEPOOLS.
