    • Description:

      This coffee table book is a collection of Alvin B. Cruz’s one hundred and one new haiku interspersed with watercolor paintings by Pinky Peralta. Built around the general theme of the four seasons, Written on Water offers a microscopic yet colorful view of life in seemingly ordinary things: falling leaves, a shared umbrella, shadow of a butterfly, soundless wind chimes, and many other everyday encounters made extraordinary by the combined magic of the poet’s pen and the artist’s brush.



      “A powerful moving collection, haunted by trace leavings. The poems here shift sensitively between moments of shared experience and connection, to moments of farewells, longings, and absences…”

      -Paul Chambers

      Award-winning haiku poet and founding editor

      of Wales Haiku Journal




      “With flowing pigmented water that behaves as if with a mind of its own, Pinky Peralta expertly reins it in, her brush capturing the haiku’s sudden flash of enlightenment.”

      -Cid Reyes
