Gentle Happiness

One summer weekend
I wrote a lot of haiku
Now they’re in a book.

This is probably my weirdest project to date. 70 haiku inspired by Japanese sweets and snacks, an effect of a sudden bout of creativity a few weekends ago. I haven’t written any poetry since that mad age when everyone thinks they’re a poet, so this was rather sudden. The main theme combines my two main pursuits in life – Japan and food 🙂 I added some personal notes to each haiku, then my wife made a few illustrations, and now the little book of poems is on Amazon, because hey, why not.

If for some reason you feel like buying “Gentle Happiness”, it’s available exclusively on Amazon Kindle for the moment, for a mere $0.99
