Poetry, by Kate Garland

 

Using the traditional form of Japanese haiku – three lines of five, seven, five syllables – the poetry is organized into five sections: The Nature of Nature, The Human Condition, Time and Place, Sense and Nonsense, The Sacred and The Ordinary.  Kate has been writing haiku for almost 40 years and some of her poetry conforms to the traditional subjects of nature, seasons, time and place in the present moment.  Other poems bring her 21st century mind-set into focus as she enters her eighth decade of living.  The five sections of the book are introduced by a relevant haiku and photographs by Kate.
