    • Thank you My Friend for calling in, read and kind comments. So pleased you enjoyed. Your thoughts about the radical format rather than the traditional book format would be much appreciated. Have a great day.

      • I don’t know how it would have been different if it had been in a book format, but I thought the format was good. Sorry, I’m not more help. Hope you have a good day 🙂


      • Your comments, My Friend, are much valued. The publication is very much in the format of a traditional book but adapted to a slideshow. I just wished WP had a means of making the slideshow pages appear to turn over rather than slide from one slide to the next. So pleased you enjoyed. Stay Smiling.

  1. Congratulations, Goff. This is so exciting!
    I like your fresh and unique publication format. Slideshow is for me a perfect way to browse haikus. Their short “three lines” work well for reading/ reflection.
    Your poems are emotional jewels. Even when the topic “seems” unrelated to human experience, you capture the essence feeling, examples:
    #49…”waiting for the tide” and #57:
    “Loves carousel spins
    Life’s tragic symohonies played…”

    I enjoyed the food related imager poems…#15 #36 #34–in
    “Potato Salad…Dining al fresco.”

    Thank you, my friend, for this sumptuous haiku feast! Namaste.

  2. I just finished reading the collection, which I greatly enjoyed. I recognized a few old favorites and found some new ones. I think the Introduction you wrote was a good idea to give readers the context for the poems and the frame of mind to appreciate them fully. The format worked great for this collection. I appreciated how easy it was to go from one page to the next. (Not always the case with PDFs.)


    • Sorry Liz for the delay in replying. Many thanks for the read and much valued comments. Most of the poems go right back to when I first started trying to write haiku. On reading them, many were dreadful; consequently, I spent much time rewriting them to get some semblance of poetic decency about them. The publication format did concern me considerably as it seemed rather radical with regard to publishing an anthology. I just wished WP had a facility in slideshow that enabled page ‘turn over’ transition rather than just transition slide to slide. Have a great day My Friend
