108 Poems to Cultivate Awareness and Open your HeartBook - 2010
Haiku, the Japanese form of poetry written in just three lines, can be miraculous in its power to articulate the profundity of the simplest moment--and for that reason haiku can be a useful tool for bringing us to a heightened awareness of our lives. Here, the poet Patricia Donegan shares her experience of the haiku form as a way of insight that anyone can use to slow down and uncover the beauty of ordinary moments. She presents 108 haiku poems--on themes such as honesty, transience, and compassion--and offers commentary on each as an impetus to meditation and as a key to unlocking the wonder in what we find right before us.
