 About the Book 

Brief, cosmic, all-over-the-map, and very-American short-takes about New Mexico, and the Southwest, from the pen of writer Hank Malone, whos lived in New Mexico, peripatetically, for some years. The combination of haiku form and New Mexicos terrainMoreBrief, cosmic, all-over-the-map, and very-American short-takes about New Mexico, and the Southwest, from the pen of writer Hank Malone, whos lived in New Mexico, peripatetically, for some years. The combination of haiku form and New Mexicos terrain seemed a natural combination: New Mexico lends itself to a thousand Zen and holy snapshots of the heart-as-landscape. Malone has covered the mileage in New Mexico, creating a book with something sweet, something hard, something delicate, and something hilarious, Here is a handy-sized book you can slip into any pocket, whether as a gift to a friend, or a gift to yourself. It is a book that speaks about a region of America as intensely as the regions of the writers heart. This is an exciting second edition, with new haiku poems added to the haiku in the sold-out first edition. New Mexico is rarely illuminated so broadly in such a short space, and with so few words, as in this collection of very readable 3-line haiku, touching every aspect of New Mexico. If you have ever felt any of the majic of the American Southwest, this book will help you re-kindle it- it touches the pain, the pleasures, and the mercies of the high desert, and the majestic mountains of the southern Rockies.A vast world is opened in a small space in New Mexico Haiku, re-published in revision in 1998, back by popular demand.
