"Urban Haiku's" photographs were gathered over a few brief days of spring in Vancouver. The book stems from a profound appreciation of and closeness to nature as is often referred to by the Japanese as "wabi-sabi" or the recognition that beauty can be found informally, even in the depths of poverty". These moments caught the beauty of falling cherry blossoms and like our fleeting existence is exquisite where ever it dwells. Here are some of those moments captured on the side of the road, on wind shields, gutters, and in between. Gathered and inspired by the spirit of another Japanese term "furabo" which indicates the process here, "a person who roams about, unattached, carried like a slender piece of cloth fluttering in the wind."
