Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984039937, Paperback)Lifting the Sky is the first in a new series from Dos Gatos Press: Poetry of the American Southwest. A perfect marriage of form—haiku—and subject—the limitless inspirations of the American Southwest—Lifting the Sky is essential reading for haiku and poetry lovers everywhere. With thirty-three stunning haiga, this collection is also a treat for the eye. Penny Harter, co-author of The Haiku Handbook (25th Anniversary Edition, 2010), contributed the foreword. "Here." Harter says, "we enter haiku and haiga that take us through the beauties of the landscape—from desert and mountains to the sea; poems that express the poets' political, spiritual, mythical, cultural, and deeply personal connections to the Southwest; poems that make us laugh or cry; and poems drenched in light that repeatedly carry us from the Earth into the stars and galaxies. As does the landscape, these poems lift us out of ourselves."
