Book Review: Midnight Haiku

A Year in Contemplation: Midnight Haiku by Sue Vincent.
ISBN 9781910478394

What can I say?
I started and carried on until I’d finished.
I have always enjoyed walks in the forest, along the beach, or through parks. We miss so much in our daily lives, taking it for granted and not really paying attention.
The way Sue has put the collection together takes us from our surroundings into a world of Nature and awareness of everything around us.
I turned out the light feeling relaxed and mellow, any tension having just melted away.

She says on the back cover that each can be read alone or ‘on the surface’, but they all simply flow together. I picked it up again this morning and the book fell open at page 61:

Extract copyright Sue Vincent

Heaven at my feet
A pathway to paradise
Waits for my footsteps

Clouds call me onwards
The stones tether me to earth
Heather holds my heart

My feet kiss the earth
Embracing its sacredness
My soul wanders free

I loved it.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
