Tsugigami: gathering the pieces, rengay and linked verse of Valorie Broadhurst Woerdehoff and Connie R Meester


Categories: ,


Shortlisted for the Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2018 by The Haiku Foundation!

In Tsugigami, a selection of linked verse, we hear the voices of two women whose remarkable writing partnership spans the breadth of 24 years. Working in collaboration, they explore everything from the mundane to the majestic. Grounded in a sense of place and mindful of our relationship to nature, they take us on a journey of love, loss, family, and transitions, from childhood memories and current events, to ghosts and dreams.

“The whole concept of the book is by turns exquisite and heart-rending . . . by the end of Tsugigami I felt as much a part of the collage as the hands that so deftly crafted it.”

— Claire Everett, editor, Skylark

          deep breath
          wishing I could crawl inside
          the big dipper
                    — Connie R Meester

               deciding what to bring
               on this journey
               pink moon
                         — Valorie Broadhurst Woerdehoff
