Tides of Amber

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
This book is not a simple collection of random poems. Instead, it is an invitation to a journey, a journey that attempts to enclose the spirit of a full year into one hundred and eight haiku spread over as many pages. More

This is a wonderful book containing a sensitive contemplation of nature throughout the four seasons. The author displays a good mastery of both the metrics and the spirit of Haiku. In an increasingly busy and hectic world, he has found the time needed for short breaks over an entire year in order to immortalize various scenes offered by nature, combined with the deep feelings induced by these scenes. His uncontrollable attraction to nature renders him in a highly sensitive state during moments of daily life, generating profound feelings which lead him to thoughtful observations of the laws of nature. The result of this reactive chain is presented as a set of 108 small and shiny jewels gathered in this volume. I am glad to have this book and can thoroughly recommend it to all enthusiasts of this lyric genre.

An interesting work of poetry, presented in an original style. It is difficult to describe its content outside the direct experience of reading the book. The short haiku poems are displayed only one per page, sorted by seasons, and arranged in a way suggesting a journey through an entire year. This journey is full of surprising discoveries set in poetic sketches full of emotional content. Definitely worth a read!

The lecture of this book makes the reader feel a bit like doing Zen meditation in a Buddhist temple. Each poem makes the mind focus on the present moment, enjoying the scenes and emotions described in it. As there is only one haiku per page, this gives your thoughts more time to think about the verses and a chance to better see in vivid color the beauty of nature. A cleverly designed poetry volume and a fascinating journey into imagination.
