how the wind sighs: haiku of Beverly Acuff Momoi


“Bev Momoi’s haiku do not just record, they reanimate, moments. Twilight streaks. Stitches get dropped. Syllables dance. These poems dwell in the shadows and shimmer in the light. Some are unforgettable. This is a deeply affecting collection.” — Scott Mason


“The twin sisters of beauty and sadness sing in Beverly Acuff Momoi’s debut haiku collection. Solace comes from familiar flora and fauna — the littleleaf linden and what might whisper in the red fox’s ear. Each moment is an open invitation to return to ourselves. A thoughtfully curated collection to be savored.”

— Cherie Hunter Day

seeding a pomegranate
you hum a song
I don't know

home away from home someone else's green mountains

deep snow misspelling my father's name

autumn wind
she rubs my neck
with her tail
