Watch for new Amazon eBook promos and more recipes posted here, coming in early September.
Right now, I am taking a bit of a break from writing and most online activity. Enjoying the sunshine, here on Vancouver Island and planning a short trip too.
Wishing You a Safe, Happy (and not TOO hot) Summer! 😁

And here's what some readers have shared about the Haiku Reflections series to date:
"The poems are both delicate and precise, as all haiku should be. There is not a wasted syllable, with the imagery always crystal clear, whether describing color, scent, movement, weather, foliage, animals, or the thoughts engendered in the mind and soul of the author. Ms. Hartman captures the essence of what our eyes and minds too often dismiss: a weathered gazebo, lemonade, a thunderstorm, rain, a mop and bucket, a bridge, or a simple act of kindness.
Each poem is thoughtfully tendered, and the poems may be read back to back, or they may be read individually, allowing the imagery to sink deeper so that the various images may crystallize in new and insightful ways. Indeed, haiku always invites the reader to savor a single thought or scene and its beauty and fragility, and Ms. Hartman has given us such beauty in every one of her offerings. They are truly reflections that call readers to a deeper stillness and appreciation of the moment." William Hammett, poet and author of: John Lennon and the Mercy Street Cafe
"Haiku Reflections is a light- hearted collection of modern-style haiku. With themes that exist within seasons, alight with spirited punctuation, the language and moments of reflection are beautiful, gentle, and occasionally whimsical. Haiku Reflections is a book you will return to again and again." Glenn Lyvers, Haiku Journal
"There are many haiku sites/books with several contradictory rules (as is the way with "experts"). Haiku poet: Geraldine Hartman always seems to have full command of this poetry form." Sue Turner, poet and author of: When the Wind Blows and North of Summer
"I am always amazed when so much can be told in only 17 syllables and Ms. Hartman is gifted at telling a story with beautiful brevity." Jan Morrill, haiku poet and author of: The Red Kimono
Each of the volumes in the The Haiku Reflections series are available in Kindle eBook version (with photos) and in print version, at all the Amazon sites.
