The Stargazing Frog 🐸 is a collection of original haiku and other 3-liners in the style of Japanese poetry, that points to us the significance of the “little” ⭐ moments, the moments that deep down really matter the most.

The first snowflake at Winter β›„, a grasshopper’s πŸ¦— hope for sun at Spring, a butterfly’s πŸ¦‹wild dream at Summer, the first petal to fall πŸ₯€at Autumn.

REVIEWS BY READERS.

  • A classic form of poetry with an American flair that easily bests the Instagram poetry fad. Small poems with big pictures.

a remedy for the pain of impermanence.

The stargazing frog is each and every one of us. We are just tiny observers in a large life and in a vast universe πŸ’«, given with a choice: we can either be overwhelmed and paralysed by the burdens and magnitude of life.

Or we can accept life’s hardships as a fact and try to turn them into something beautiful and meaningful. Poetry just shows us the way towards the stars πŸŽ‡.

infinite love πŸ’–
in the four dimensions
of our two lips

a haiku for each day of the seasonal year.

Beginning on the first day of Winter, with the winter solstice on 22 December 2019, and ending on the last day of Autumn, on 21 December 2020, the Stargazing Frog 🐸 offers 366 original haiku poems on a variety of themes.

Every day, you can read, enjoy, contemplate or share a haiku about: Nature or humans, rural or urban environment, life or death, impermanence or eternity, humour or irony, love or hate, annoyance or peace of mind.

enjoy the true 'flavour' of haiku in the english language.

While in Japanese poetry 🎌 a haiku strictly follows the pattern of 5-7-5 phonetic units, the poems of this book follow only one rule. For each poem, first and third lines have the same number of syllables, not necessarily five though, while the second line has two more.

That way the overall rhythm of a haiku is preserved without adhering blindly πŸ•Ά to a form that has little meaning in the English language.

silent summer night
star falls β€” before my deep wish
cricket πŸ¦— makes his, first

a haiku book for every poetry lover, regardless of age.

This poetry collection ebook is for you, if you love poetry, you can appreciate short poems, you are fond of Japanese poetry and culture, and above all if you love to gaze at the stars at night.

Also, it is an ideal present for your loved ones or if you are searching poems for teens.
