Broadside of haiku by Donna Fleischer / pressing on publishing

rail cars stacked with wood
slowly pass the living
I whisper to them, kaddish

Donna Fleischer

This broadside in the colors of spalted wood, of a haiku by Donna Fleischer, was created by “pressing on” publishing initiative, Heidi Lynn Staples, publisher. The text  and illustration ink were stamped into recycled plastic by Lily Brown on January 17, 2011, in Athens Georgia. (Photograph by Heidi Lynn Staples)

Most importantly this broadside is a remembrance as witness to the unprecedented loss of life and suffering caused by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The haiku was submitted by Donna Fleischer to Poets for Living Waters as part of a global poetry action response to the BP oil disaster on April 20, 2010 — “one of the most profound human-made ecological catastrophes in history”(Poets for Living Waters). Kaddish for the Earth. ~ yours truly, df
