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 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.

    Ellen – The photo does not do the broadside justice, and all the poems are delight.
