For twenty years, novelist Ellis Avery has been writing a haiku a day.  At the end of the year, she gathers the poems into booklets, most recently using the format of a daily planner, which she chose for its quotidian informality, the potential it has to smuggle poetry into everyday life.  Readers can use the book as an actual planner, or use the blank space provided as a place to write daily haiku of their own.  

In crisp, intimate, and precise language, Avery charts the seasons of 2018, its grace notes of beauty and humor, and her own evolving struggle with cancer.  

“Any random Tuesday, a flower blooming, the look in a passing stranger’s eyes, a mediocre sunset. The heart of a haiku: Ellis Avery has it.”  —Michael Stipe
