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

Sucha Deal Weekend Phoku

In celebration of National Poetry Month, I am offering the Kindle version of my first haiku/picturebook, PhoKu -visual perspective haiku for less than a dollar!  Friday, April 7th 11:00am EDT – Monday April 10th 11:00am EDT, you can download this book for .99

As I describe the term PhoKu, in the book itself:

 Explain what we see

Attach words to the pictures

We create PhoKu

 The majority of pictures in this book are those I took at a nearby park. I fell in love with the ducks, geese and the scenery in which they danced, walked, flew and relaxed. I have read them some of the haiku from the book and I feel they are pleased…

 Enjoy!  And remember, you can gift this book to someone when you place your Kindle order. What a nice thing for you to do.

Wishing with your heart

Convinced in your very soul

It can all be yours

Keep that resolve

Walk along the path of trust

Reap because it’s so
