Praise for Earthshine

‘Every poem is brilliant, and I do mean brilliant . . . Itís destined to be a classic.’
—Christopher Herold
Founding Editor, The Heronís Nest

‘In this stunning collection, Chuck Brickley transforms the ordinary into the magical, and casts the magical in a new light. For anyone who still does not “get” haiku, let them open this book to any page.’
—Billie Wilson
Associate Editor, The Heronís Nest

‘Chuck Brickleyís sensibility and heart are enriched by quietude. Broadly themed around nature and family, earthshine leaves an emotional space for the reader to occupy, the deceptive simplicity of phrasing deepening each haikuís effect.’
—Bruce Ross
Editor, Haiku Moment

spring evening
I play with the last kitten
to be given away

a hummingbird
stuck on a burdock burr
the shimmering breeze

morning quiet
a fir sifts snow
into the lake

guttering candle . . .
I tuck my son in
with my motherís hands

a snowshoe hare
hops through its breath
morning star
