  2. We had a short-lived Indian summer also here in the US Midwest. I loved the reprise from the chill but I also love the crisp autumn air. I’m excited about your book!!! I will look into ordering it if I can get it in the states. It is a wonderful mission you have and I hope you can raise lots for the cause.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words LuAnne, our Indian Summer lasted four days and now we are back to bright sunshine and much cooler temperatures. Thank you also for your good wishes for our book – it is very exciting and we hope we can help many shelters. The book is available in the US through Barnes & Noble, Book Depository, Wordery, Amazon and can be ordered through any bookshop linked up to the Ingram Spark distribution network πŸ™‚πŸ’– xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Sultana πŸ’œ The ‘perfect’ haiku is a haiku that has been created from a place of truth, a place of quiet observation, that leaves enough room for the imagination of the reader to find their own meaning within the poem πŸ™‚
