About the Book
Entering The Stream is a collection of over 230 modern poems in the traditional Japanese haiku style ~ seventeen syllables written within three lines ~ catching emotions, thoughts, and moments in time. My inspiration flowed beyond the themes of seasons & nature to a form called senryu ~ light, humorous, and sometimes emotional poems of modern life, relationships, and spirit.
* Also available in EBOOK format of iPad and iPod from Blurb.com
Influenced by time spent in Japan and the animism of Shinto, chapters include seasons & nature, animals, friendships, relationships, life, family, transitions, spirit, and a temple walk series. I welcome your comments.
