Carol Purington, the prize winning poet who resides on a family farm in Colrain, has created this framable cycle of haiku that evoke the Bridge of Flowers through the seasons. She begins with the Bridge itself
Arching/the Indian old river/bridge of blossoms
Arc of geese/under frosted flowers/the river too runs south
Summer-green/floats out from under the arches -/flower bridge blooms.
The beautifully matted work of art is available at Shelburne Falls locations: Sawyer News; Boswells Books (which also sells Carol’s books); and Heart for Art. You can also get in touch with me at email@example.com. This is a lovely memento of a visit to the Bridge of Flowers, or a reminder of the good fortune those of use who can traverse the Bridge in all seasons.
