for the birds: haiku of Sarah Paris


“Paris’ haiku are signposts on the highway of poetry, imploring us to slow down to observe all the little things that are actually big and important. She reminds us that these, added up, are what make a meaningful and beautiful life.”
— Bryan Rickert


“In for the birds Sarah Paris uses her ‘outside voice’ to celebrate birds and contemplate outdoor spaces. I savored these poems during the dreary aftermath of a New England spring snowstorm and felt uplifted and carried along on a wave of West Coast color and sound, as if spring migration were happening in my head. Paris’s often playful, always resonant haiku open many windows onto the birds and other creatures with whom we share this world. These are haiku to savor and enjoy, preferably on a park bench or along the trail.”
