My Maine, Haiku through the Seasons by Bette A. Stevens

Available in paperback ($16.00) today!

Pre-order eBook ($4.99)—delivered on July 1, 2019.

Early Review

“Bette Stevens has used the bounty and beauty of the seasons in her home state of Maine as inspiration for lyrical and charming haikus that touch the soul and enliven the senses. From the windowsill seedlings and crowned crocus choirs of spring to the lady slippers and salamander spots of summer… from crispy, crunchy leaves and pumpkin confections of autumn to the white weighted branches and icicles weeping of winter… Bette Stevens’s imagery draws the reader into her world of wonder and delight. This is a collection to be slowly savored, made even more delicious with her original drawings and photographs. I can’t remember enjoying a book of poetry more.”—N.A. Granger, Professor Emerita, University of North Carolina

Blurb

Inspired by The Pine Tree State­—Maine’s diverse landscape, natural beauty, rural communities, and independent people—the author’s 150 haiku poems, along with her photographs take readers on a memorable journey. The collection travels through Maine’s four seasons and includes state symbols and interesting facts about The Pine Tree State.

    I recently visited my 50th state (Alaska), Bette, but I have no memory of Maine because I was so young when my family passed through. I look forward to reading your book and revisiting Maine at my more advanced age when I can appreciate it.

    • Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and chat, Pete. Dan and I have visited all 48 of the contiguous states to date… The wonders abound and I can only imagine the glories of Alaska and Hawaii. I hope you enjoy MY MAINE and will have a chance to come back for a visit. June, late September and very early October are great times to visit “The Pine Tree State.” Best wishes, Bette.
