I love writing and reading haiku, these delicate sculptures of words and images.
For my Sunday blog post Haiku-San I created the hashtag #haikusan. It derives from Haiku, meaning unusual verse in Japanese (hai=unusual, ku=verse, strophe) and San, the honorific Japanese title when speaking about people. San is also the phonetic transcription of the first syllable of the English word Sunday, Sun-day hence Haiku-San.
Here are all the haiku I wrote so far (list updated weekly):

Read poetry and haiku in As Good AS Gold:
“What I really liked about the book is that it is seen through the eyes of a dog but there isn’t an attempt to make every poem sentimental about it being man’s best friend.” (5*, Peter, Amazon TOP 1000 Reviewer)
“I thoroughly enjoyed As Good As Gold. The photographs of the dogs that accompany the poems are adorable, and striking. They add another depth to the words, which I thought was beautiful.” (Jessica, 5* Amazon review)
