In this collection of 20 haiku, Julie Warther crystallizes time as it runs through fields, woodlands, and water; a world "frozen / in an icicle / a sky full of stars." She celebrates these fleeting moments-and how, folding time over time, they contain "landmarks / that used to be." Ben Moeller-Gaa, author of WASP SHADOWS (Folded Word), says: "What I love most about this chapbook is how the poems in it are so keenly tied to the title, What Was Here. In it we step into moments where a firefly's light goes out, a branch whisks back into place after the departure of some unseen animal, or the remnants of a scarecrow's stake remain in the fields after the crops have been harvested. These moments, ensconced in Julie Warther's finely crafted contemporary haiku, remind us that life is happening all around us, and that we not only should, but need to stop and take notice before we, too, become something that once was here."
