Overview

In haikus, as in life, all can be distilled to a handful of bones; this, despite our best efforts to complicate matters.

This collection of non-traditional haikus is the first in a series entitled "Abusing the Transitive Property", a project constructed on the premise that common observations and musings--born as they are of uncommon lives--are, by extension, art; or not.

    Lovely work

    After reading #44, I paused, went back to #41 and re-read it with a different perspective. Now that I've finished reading the remaining haikus, I want to thank the author for sharing some of his feelings about that difficult time. Even if I misread this, it brought back memories of my own father, and I thank you for that.

    Lovely little poems. Several of them made me pause, set my Nook down, and think about them a little more. Some had me thinking "Isn't that the truth!" while others were simply there. All in all, I'm happy to have come across this in the B&N shop.

    Thanks for sharing your work and I'll look for the second volume in your series.

    Actually pretty good

    For amateur poetry, many of these little "haikus" are quite entertaining, well thought-out, and bordering on artful.
