About the book:
Haiku poems traditionally focus on nature and the seasons, but in this modern collection the poet seeks to capture evocations of Suburbia.
Combining elegance, wit and honesty these haiku and senryu explore an often overlooked, ridiculed but beautiful aspect of our modern lives: Suburbia.
Suburbia is where millions of us live now, it is at the core of our 21st century lives and there is beauty and truth there if you are willing to see it.
Haiku from Suburbia is available to buy now on Kindle here.
