A poem is a response. It should be mysterious, and yet lay everything bare. It should draw forth long forgotten memories, tastes, scents, and evoke new emotions. This book makes use of the traditional form of the Japanese haiku, but does not limit itself to the contemplation of nature. It explores love, and loss, despair, beauty, and temptation. It is the eastern poetic tradition, blended with a western sensibility. If you liked this author's Rose Colored Windows, you will love this new collection!
