This is Mr. Lordan's sixth collection of poetry. Haiku is a difficult verse form to master and Mr. Lordan has managed to make it look easy. With confident assurance, he produces lyrical beauty in concise lines while maintaining a sense of freshness in this ancient style from Japan. He claims two sources for his inspiration: the love of his brown-eyed mystery woman; and the bucolic paradise of his childhood vacation spot, Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. Add to that an almost zen-like mystic quality to some of the poems and you have a potent mix of Love and Spirituality. This book is Mr. Lordan at his romantic best.
