Like traditional Haiku, these poems are structured into compact, three-;lione, 5/7/5 syllable schemes. And that's where the "traditional" stops:

What People Are Saying

Linda Sharp
"Faith R. Foyil has managed to reduce parenting down to its basic components and being a Mom, Dad, spouse or caregiver has never been as funny. Would make the perfect gift for those brand new parents for whom free time is at a premium."

    Review by Jennifer Brown, Bookpleasures

    ¿So he¿s got a straw. It¿s still not polite to say `You suck¿ to your friend¿ (p. 69) Faith R. Foyil is a woman of many talents. She can raise a family of turtles. She can write a mean humor essay. She can take care of sick children, make it to a play date, and start up an emergency generator all at the same time. And while she¿s at it, why not write a few haiku? 101 HAIKU FOR MOMS is a collection of Foyil¿s haiku which is amazingly often both introspective and hilarious. Foyil¿s ability to boil down frustrations and elations of parenthood into just a few well-balanced syllables makes 101 HAIKU FOR MOMS such a pleasing read. Here are a couple of my favorites: ¿Booger. Ha! Barf. Buurrrp. Weeeee. I¿m not making this up! Early Dave Barry¿ (p. 67) ¿Caution up ahead! There ¿ lurking in the still of night: Lego on tile floor¿ (p. 37) 101 HAIKU FOR MOMS is a book all moms must have for a glance, quick pick-me-up, or end of the day reflection. In true hilarious Foyil style, this book will be a beloved book on all moms¿ (new, old, or in-between) bookshelves.
