Book Description


Morning to Morning is a book of haikus paired with photos. The pairings capture precious moments of reflection throughout major stages of the day. The haikus speak of peace, murky worlds, pain, happy days, great lunches, thoughts at breakfast, road travels and much more. The photos display the mood revealed by the poetry. Join me as I take you on this remarkable journey from morning to morning.

Sample Chapter

Bright Fall Mornings

sharp are the outlines
of ripples, hilltops, tree lines
these bright fall mornings

Cloudy Overlook

jobs overlooking
hills, valleys although cloudy
sweat tolerable

Majesty Departs

majesty of light
departs from our horizons
we turn to face night

Would anyone like a Haiku?

earth swallows light rain
purple flowers cloud my sky
as i sip my Merlot

Happy Friday

salmon on a bed
of chard at business lunch
makes happy Friday


and as i pick up
my pen again leaves open

Afternoon Coffee

afternoon coffee
paired with an elegant snack
eclectic moment

Red Sky Hovering

red sky hovering
above a peaceful landscape
i forget drama
