My Maine: Haiku through the Seasons


Bette Stevens

The pine tree state:

Maine pines and people

Survivors, resilient souls

Standing tall and proud


Is that true!  Spending much of my youth during the summer Maine season at Lake St. George, I can relate to all of the Haiku poems that Ms. Stevens writes.

I’ve never been a fan of Haiku, but after reading this, I know I will read more. She shows us in these elegant Japanese poems the seasons, colors, wildlife and people-life that Maine has to offer.

Pragmatic figures

Independence their calling

Rugged yet limber

Anyone who loves country-life, city-life, people, wildlife and wilderness will love this book.

I give it five stars.
