Instances of Haiku

Instances of Haiku – Haiku being a form of poetry originating in Japan, composed of seventeen syllables set out in three lines of five, seven and five syllables each – brings together 92 poems created for my Instagram account @bgdtcoaching during the period May 2020 – December 2020.

Despite the trials and challenges of 2020, Instagram proved to be a valuable source of creativity, especially concerning Haiku. Check out @pond.plop, @s.i.l.v.i.e.s and @wadesdailyhaiku, for example.

Perhaps deserving now of a wider audience beyond Instagram, Instances of Haiku is a book of reflection. It may encourage us to ponder various aspects of life, seeing them from a new perspective.

In any case, I hope you at least enjoy the words set out in these poems.

Happy Reading!
