I chose the name Haiku-San as 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, a Sunday feature on Alluring Creations involving Haiku I write.
Did you know that the very first Thanksgiving to be recorded was held back in 1621 by a group of Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians?
This was one year after the Pilgrims arrived on the territories occupied by 40 000 people in 67 villages, forming the proud Wampanoag Nation. Pilgrims and Indians signed a peace treaty that sadly only lasted as long as the Indian chief Massoit was alive.
“I have a confession to make. I’m not much of a dog lover. I’m more a cat person so I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy As Good As Gold, celebrating dogs. I needn’t have worried. I thoroughly enjoyed this charming collection of verse and as a result of reading it I think I understand dogs so much better.” @Lindahill50Hill, Book Reviewer.
“There is something truly magical about this wonderful collection. Having read each poem, I love how every word celebrates our canine companions from the tip of their wet noses to the wag of their tails.” (Susan Day, Editor and Author)
As Good As Gold is also available as an e-book, paperback and in Large Print, colorful pictures, a dyslexia friendly edition: get it on Amazon UK, Amazon US
