all the stars i can swallow: haiku of Laurie D. Morrissey


Not everyone who travels has actually been somewhere. Not everyone who has lived some-where has actually lived there. But Laurie D. Morrissey has done both. The proof is in these poems.


Shortlisted for the Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2022 from The Haiku Foundation!

Laurie D. Morrissey’s sensitivity to the passing seasons, reverence for the outdoor world, and playfulness with language make this collection one to savor. These well-crafted haiku reflect the mind of a poet attuned to the details and nuances of everyday life that matter most.

if all else fails —
the uplift
of sparrow song

sweetfern —
my feet gathering the scent
of summer

clear ice —
skating into dad’s
perfect circle

morning ghosts
the bricks still warm
behind the woodstove
