Haiku

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)

As Good As Gold is also available in e-book, paperback and Large Print, colorful pictures, a dyslexia friendly edition: get it on Amazon UK, Amazon US
