Haiku

Stone Deaf Sound Waves

Stone Deaf Sound Waves is available for purchase on Amazon.com in Paperback and Kindle formats.

 
Haiku are an age-old Japanese poetry form organized in lines of 5-7-5 syllables. Stone Deaf Sound Waves is a westerner’s impression of these wonderfully expressed and compact lines. The poems convey visualizations and understandings that touch the spirit of the reader. They are humorous, irreverent and thought-provoking, and include observations on nature, life, love, and the innermost feelings we all have.

 

To Those Who Don't Get Haiku
 
a haiku to most 
seemingly abstract when seen 
one must visualize
five seven five syllables
a new world within
