Haiku Reflections by Geraldine Hartman

haiku reflections

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

I confess, I don’t know much about the art of haiku, but I do know a lot about words, and Geraldine Hartman uses them in spare, but beautiful, combinations to evoke a whole host of seasonal images and emotions. You wouldn’t think a mere three lines–just 17 syllables–could say so much, but if chosen wisely, this book proves they certainly can. Fall is my favorite season, so I was especially entranced by the crisp, cool images presented in that section of the book. I could smell autumn in the air with every haiku!

Haiku Reflections is put together beautifully, too, with color photographs at the beginning of each season, and that adds a great deal to the entire presentation.Geraldine is a blogging friend of mine, so I can’t be entirely objective here, but If you love poetry, even if you aren’t familiar with haiku, I think you will really enjoy this lovely book. I sure did. It’s a good introduction to a very old art form.

  1. Hi Marcia, thanks for sharing one of my poetry books here and the nice review! :) Haiku Reflections has been on the top 100 paid (haiku) poetry list at Amazon for quite a while now, so that’s nice too. ;) I hope some of your readers will enjoy my books too. Thanks again. :)

    • That’s great, Geraldine. It deserves to be there. I thought the descriptive quality of your work was very, very good. I’m learning to appreciate haiku now, which was not something I’d given much thought to before. It’s always good to discover a new form of art, and for me, this was something I’d never really read before. Thanks for making the introduction to haiku so much fun, and so evocative. I’m longing for those fall days you described so elegantly, in such few words. (A skill I’ve yet to learn…describing anything in a few words, that is. :D )

      Hope some of my readers do check it out. It’s a great, and very pretty, little book!
