My review

A Haiku Perspective 2017 is a book of poetry, mainly tanka and haiku poems with a sprinkling of lovely and longer free style poetry, by Annette Rochelle Aben. I have read a few of Aben’s books and find them to be uplifting and filled with positive energy which I think is a great thing. This little book is the same as the others in that it is packed with inspiring messages wrapped up in delightful verses.

There are poems that will make you smile, or even raise a giggle, such as this short extract:

“Picnics make us smile

Thank an ant today

Set out a few extra crumbs

They like picnics too!”

from World Gratitude Day (9-21)

There are some delightfully descriptive poems which bring a new level of visual wonderment to an every day event or thing, such as this lovely little description:

“Dance among the stars

Wearing moonbeams as slippers.”

from Air Abesque

And then there are the inspiration and uplifting poems that put you in a good mood for the rest of your day, like this poem”

“It’s that moment when

You find the strength to say yes

To being happy

And in that moment

You accept the ownership

Of your own future”

from Dawn of Time
