Staring at the Midnight Sky, photo haiku and tanka of Mark Teaford


Categories: , ,


Mark Teaford’s sure eye and skillful processing of images is on full display in this subtle volume. Limiting himself to a subdued palette of neutral grays, warm sepias and cool blues, Teaford presents a series of images that compel the eye, and pairs them with poems that, often oblique to the image, challenge the mind. The result is something eclectic, heartfelt, arresting, and completely unique.

“As in all the best things, one is invited to stop, linger, and bask in one’s personal associations . . .” Carolyn Hall, editor, Mariposa

the comfort
of dad’s snoring
we try to take a breath
without him

                    after the fires
                    with wildflowers

          the silence
          of the redwoods
          stretches through the night
