This book is a collection of thoughts on ordinary moments and images captured and frozen in time. It takes you on a reflective, introspective journey through the four seasons with full-color naturephotographs from the USA, Japan, China, Malaysia,Australia and New Zealand. The reflective musings are prompted by haiku, the traditional Japanese poetry of 17 syllables elevated to an art form by the 17 century master Matsuo Basho. In keeping with the essence of haiku, the images in the book portray, in simple and unassuming language, nature in its fluidity as one season follows another. It is dedicated to all who are able to find a moment of solitude each day to connect nature to the soul.
