Blurb About The Book: This E-book has 26 Haikus on various topics. A Haiku (high-koo) is a short three-line poem that uses sensory language to capture a feeling or image. Haiku poetry was originally developed by Japanese poets about 400 years ago. They are often inspired by nature, a moment of beauty, or poignant experience. Since the introduction of Haiku to the west in the early years of the 20th century, Haiku has influenced the literature of many countries to a great extent.
Romila says, in terms of feeling like I’ve REALLY accomplished and completed something, Haiku for me tops the list. It’s poetry of simple art form but has meaningful expression.
This book is a collection of 26 Haikus written for 2018 A to Z Challenge. This is her fourth ebook. I feel lucky that I reviewed Roma’s second eBook – “The Three Flowers” and interviewed her as the first cool blogger for our Chill Chat With Cool Bloggers series. She’s a sweet friend of mine and go to friend for blogging help. She has been already familiar to our readers through her guest post, her blog success mantra, and her love for her mom. So this review gave me another chance to be in her closest memories.
I always love haikus as they are short yet packed with more thoughts. So this book attracted me a lot. You can read this book anytime like traveling, waiting and at your free time. All haikus spoke the heart of the author. Among the 26, my favorites are Different – it’s different, Hot – hot and yummy, Nature – brings a smile to your lips, Quick – life lesson, Soul – love and lust, and Ying – Me and my hubby. A glimpse of a haiku entitled Quick ……
For life on earth
Death is inevitable
Make life last long not quick
In A Nutshell: Excellent ebook with an open heart expression of the author with boldness and warmth of love.

I love haikus. you can say so much in so few words. Not an easy write but intensely satisfying. This post has inspired me to start haiku-ing again.
You should, Suzy. And I may review your book too.
How I wish I was able to understand Haikus. 🙁 But I know that it is such an amazing form of creativity. Good to know Romila published a book. Thanks for sharing the review.
Thanks for your encouraging comment!
They are like passwords to an entire story..deceptively short, but each time you read it, a different meaning emerges depending on your thoughts at that point in time.
that’s a lovely Haiku. Congrats on the ebook Romila
