the slant of april snow, haiku by Laurie D. Morrissey


Categories: ,


“This collection is the work of a top class nature poet, very skilled at both observation and use of language. [Morrissey’s] view of nature and her place in it is perceptive and subtle but the images are not obscure. Rather, they invite us in to participate and bring our own world experience. Morrissey writes a bit of herself, and others, yet they all smoothly fit the place. the slant of april snow is a book to dip into again and again.”

—  Paul MacNeil

the slant of april snow captivates with its scenes of subtle, understated intimacy. The collection’s recurring imagery, set within shifting seasonal and temporal landscapes, allows us to feel the interconnectedness of all things. To immerse one’s self in these poems is to experience the tensions and inevitabilities of the unchanging, the ever-changing.”

—  Paul Chambers

          late-season boil
          the old sap house
          breathing steam

     measuring the fish
     my grandson says
     we need bigger bait

               thin ice
               a spotted turtle
               swims slowly
