It’s more important

How you feel about the goal

Then when you’ll get there

Sucha Deal Weekend A Haiku Perspective 2015

This is the book that started it all, A Haiku Perspective 2015 is my very first book of Haiku Poetry.

Not only was I thoroughly enchanted with finding I enjoyed writing haiku, I also found I enjoyed the process of putting haiku poetry books together. So, here in the final weekend of National Poetry Month, I am offering A Haiku Perspective 2015 for that ever exciting, .99 Kindle Countdown price. This deal will run from Friday, April 28th 11:00am EDT through Monday, May 1st 11:00am EDT.

I had a blast choosing the photo for the cover. This is a Bird Fairy that my sister was hired to sculpt. I took a few pictures before she delivered it to its new owner and thought it would make an intriguing cover photo. The responses have varied from wary to delighted.

Giving credit where credit is due, I have to thank fellow blogger/author Ronovan Hester for his weekly haiku challenges. This is what got me started writing haiku. Once I gave in and joined his merry band of participants, I was hooked!  His two-word prompts offered us the opportunity to be creative.  I have to say, I wasn’t always classy:

Think & Fresh

Frozen spinach sucks

When trying to make salads

Think I will buy fresh

  I still participate in those challenges, to perhaps I’ll see you there one day.

 Thank you, for participating in my celebration of National Poetry Month 2017! Thank you for gifting yourself and others A Haiku Perspective 2015 and my other books.

International Haiku Poetry Day 2017

This IS April 17th and that means I am in my glory!  Why? Because this is International Haiku Poetry Day!!  (woot woot) Now, this is National Poetry Month (all April long) and Int’l Haiku Poetry Day, so I have combined them and declared Int’l Haiku Poetry Month-Day…  (a woman’s prerogative)

https://www.thehaikufoundation.org/international-haiku-poetry-day/

If ever there was a poetry format I have embraced with every fiber of my being, it IS Haiku. Honestly, I will hear a phrase I like in my head and immediately I will hold up my left hand and use my right index finger to count out the syllables. If it doesn’t work out, I keep re-writing until it does.  Some say it’s a curse but I say it’s FUN!!

 So, what am I doing to celebrate? I have released my latest collection of Haiku, A Haiku Perspective 2017 on Kindle.  That’s right, you can visit my Author Central Page and find both the paperback (if you are so inclined) as well as the Kindle version.  I am most excited to have this book available in both formats as I know there are those who would rather have an eBook.  Me? I actually prefer to hold a paperback in my hands. There’s something intoxicating about paper and ink. (must be those memories of mimeograph machines)

Whatever you are doing to celebrate… do it in 5-7-5 style

Join in on the fun

Express yourself in haiku

Just because you can
