Seasons of the Heart by Alan Spence

Seasons of the Heart

Alan Spence

A collection of haiku that follows the seasons of the year, with beautiful imagery evoking the passing fragments of everyday life: the seagull scudding backwards or the tiny cloud of the cat's breath on the windowpane. You can dip into it anywhere to discover a perfect image, or read from start to finish to experience the essence of the unfolding year.

Extract

Sorry, but if we quote a whole poem we are in breach of copyright and to quote one line of a haiku seems pointless. You'll just have to get hold of this book - it's worth it!
