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

the comfort of dad’s snoring ends we try to take a breath without him after the fires rebuilding with wildflowers the silence of the redwoods stretches through the night
