San Diego, CA (PressExposure) October 15, 2006 -- San Diego, CA: A new book, by Edward Weiss, is all grace. âBird Haikuâ celebrates the beauty of poetry as much as it does the beauty of the world of birds.
âIt is remarkable how suited the haiku â a short, beautiful art form â seems to describe birds,â says Edward Weiss of Wisteria Press. âIn âBird Haiku,â I have brought together my love for birds with my love for haiku poetry.â
The beauty and simplicity of the haiku â a three-line, syllable-driven Japanese poem format â make for poignant, beautiful descriptions of our feathered friends. For example, Weiss writes:
Across the lakeâ¦
Weiss, who blogs on haiku and uploads regular haiku podcasts, is a master of the form, stripping it of artifice and reveling in the sheer grace of the poetry. He is the author of earlier books like âSeashore Haiku,â and his âHaiku for Gardenersâ will be released in December.
Readers can buy âBird Haikuâ online on the web site of Wisteria Press (available at http://www.wisteriapress.com) for just $11.95, and have it shipped free of charge anywhere in the United States. For a limited time, personally autographed copies are available for sale, and readers can use a generous guarantee to return the book in 90 days if they are not satisfied with their purchase.
