"Haiku Moments" is an eclectic collection of more than 100 new haiku poems, plus additional senryu, tanka, renga, and haibun poetry exploring the fascinations of brief, clear observations. Much of the focus is in Nature ~ capturing pristine moments and lively occasions throughout the seasons. Later forms of senryu and tanka turn inward, or examine complexities of our space age. The poetry shifts through observations of the moon, ocean, high desert, mountains, and seasons. There are also numerous haiku that detail journeys in lively, brief accounts. The beauty of haiku poetry is its absolute brevity!

Fabulous healing words clearly embrace delicate observations. I find renewed strength in reading these fine moments in nature, even the cancer recovery moments add great courage for all of us to grasp. Excellent haiku! Well crafted! My gratitude!
