stay close to water

You may be interested to visit Pinyon Publishing, where I ordered A Listening Life by Tracy Balzer.
I am rereading A Listening Life, by Tracy Balzer (2011, Pinyon Publishing). Sometimes I may read through a book, and then later read paragraphs aloud, and stay with a page or two for a time.
Tracy Balzer “carry some quiet around” is the author’s site.
I am reading Park Bench Memories: Haiku Tailwinds, by Gary Hotham. As stated in the book, he has been writing haiku since 1966. The haiku in this book were previously published in the last ten years, in many publications. Gary Hotham states, “Making moments wear words.” Wonderful book.
