that make you think
are badass

It's an interesting discipline
to make your flow into shapes
do shapes shift consciousness?
or just paradigms?

5.0 out of 5 starsA Delightful and Creative Twist on Traditional Haiku

July 5, 2019

Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase

Loved it!!!! In only a few well-chosen and artfully placed words, you are magically transported with Tanoa as he journeys to love, beauty, truth, politics, art, peace, joy---with a brief stopover for sweet mangos and coffee. A great book club activity, and I'm looking forward to creating Taiku of my own....

A way
To think/feel
At the same time
Little by little
Consciousness grows

I really enjoyed your book of poems and admire your concept and poetic style. I found many of your poems both accessible and in poetic terms, beautifully lyric. I liked so many of them but especially "Beauty," "The Fourth Quarter of Life," and the "Kristin" eulogies.


I should say that I'm a teacher and teach lots of poetry to 12th graders (AP Lit)! I would like to introduce your concept and teach a few of your poems this year, if that is okay, and also add your book to a list of collections for a project. I also think it would be fun for my AP students to write Taiku poems, and post them! This would be in the fall."
