Haiku Nation

By P.J. Reed

Poetry | Paperback


"Haiku Nation is a breathtaking collection of powerful modern haiku which challenges the reader to seek out and see the world afresh." The poems in Haiku Nation offer an intoxicating insight into the ethereal world of haiku. The collection is divided into sections comprising: the Seasons, Mountains, Wanderings and Waterfalling. The Seasons reflect a deep investigation into the ways of nature and her poetry makes you look at nature with an altered perspective. The haiku ‘see the warm rain drops’ is a dramatic, sensitive reinterpretation of a seemingly normal occurrence. While the poem, ‘gunnera ripples’ offers a beautiful image of the poet caught in a spring shower while walking. The poet uses the concept of the seasons as a metaphor for the progress of people’s life gently moving from the genteel progress of autumnal existence in ‘elderly couples’ to the fatality of winter and ‘little grey cloud cries’. This concept is handled with great delicacy and beauty is found in all stages of life’s journey. The Wanderings section reflects this poet’s love of travel with poems written from her visits to Kefalonia, Crete and the Far East. The solitude of the poetic existence is also remarked upon in several haiku such as ‘alone sea watching’ when a beautiful moment is captured forever in words. "Colourful pictures painted in words...exquisite..." Peter, Devon. "Highly Recommended! Soul touching poems!" Frances, Kent
