Haiku and other Micropoetry by Madhuri Maitra [Book Spotlight]

I am fascinated by this micro poetry recently when i started joining blogging groups and forums. 55 words and 100 words posts which come under flash fiction are interesting to read. Haiku is one such short Japanese traditional poetry. A typical English Haiku is a short poem following the form and style of Japanese Haiku. So, today's giveaway is about the collection of such Haiku. Participate in the #TornadoGiveaway and win book :-)








Name of the Book : HAIKU AND OTHER MICROPOETRY

Author: Madhuri Maitra





The Story:



"A short poem is a drop of the divine, a brief, brilliant flash. An emotion surges, you create an image, and the jewel is born, plucked out of thought-flow, rubbed and polished to its innate glow.

Haiku is like that. Intrinsically beautiful! Some see the beauty and others do not. Moreover, poetry is a personal experience. There’s no saying what will touch the heart, the senses, the brain, and why.

Haiku and Other Micropoetry would appeal to many people who have had idyllic childhoods in a world less crowded; who have enjoyed simple pleasures, or not; who have loved, lost, laughed, cried, danced, achieved, failed, and done everything that life bid them. They have searched for meaning and known the pain of that search. They have allowed themselves to grow with every experience.

Haiku heals. A short verse brings moments of recognition. A lot more can happen within these pages. Haiku and Other Micropoetry will be read by some with love and some with déjà vu. Some will identify with it, some might just toss it aside, and others might carry it around as a favorite dip-into read."
