Haiku Mind by Patricia Donegan

Haiku Mind, 108 Poems to Cultivate Awareness & Open Your Heart by Patricia Donegan is a special book.

The power and appeal of haiku poetry is explored in depth throughout this beautifully presented book.The author's detailed and thought-provoking interpretation of each poem is lovingly and heart-fully offered throughout.

This is also a wonderful book to relax with, at the end of a busy day or week. A source for words and phrases to meditate upon and inspire. And you don't have to be an expert or regular follower of haiku poetry to thoroughly every page.

I was touched by the work of this author. Moved by her thoughts for each haiku poem and what they meant to her on a much larger scale. Timeless, eternal lessons.

Some excerpts from the book:

"As our culture speeds up and our personal lives feel overbooked and busy, haiku can offer an easy way to slow down, appreciate the simple things around us and give us a moment to reflect on our lives."

"Basic Goodness:

first light
everything in the room
was already here"


migrating birds-
fields of pampas grass
show the way"

This book would also make a special and memorable gift.

Overall rating for this book: Excellent. 5 out of 5.
