5.0 su 5 stelle Snippets of Beauty 10 gennaio 2013
Di Cora P. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
In "Haiku Reflections", Ms. Hartman does not simply write about the four seasons, she somehow, miraculously, but in fact very skillfully, captures them whole in her words.

Spring sings of renewed life in crunchy bulbs, summer lounges lavishly by the lake, autumn throws carpets of crisp colors underneath our feet, winter is a quiet beast, safer to be observed from within the warmth of familiar things, yet hinting at the promise of another spring.

In her verse, Ms. Hartman weaves an enchanted array of colors, smells, sounds, textures, temperatures, and feelings. The imagery is simple, yet always surprising in the best of ways. A robin is a feathered talisman, felines are furry kisses... Even the occasional sadness or nostalgia, unavoidable, are soothed by the awareness of the permanence of nature, of our place in it.

This is a collection of delicate beauty, to which one can return time and again, a pleasure to the soul, one that refreshes, inspires, and ultimately gives hope.

Very highly recommended.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Beautiful, Evocative Journey 19 agosto 2012
Di William Hammett - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Geraldine Hartman's HAIKU REFLECTIONS is a marvelous book for anyone who treasures the traditional haiku form of three lines with a 5-7-5 syllable count. The poems all contain kigo, or seasonal references, in the grand tradition of this poetic form. The collection progresses through spring, summer, autumn, and winter in a journey that describes not only nature but the author's internal and external passage through the year.

The poems are both delicate and precise, as all haiku should be. There is not a wasted syllable in this volume, 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.

The haiku in this collection cover a wide range of emotions: happiness, disappointment, doubt, acceptance, joy, and meditative stillness. In detailing these emotions so carefully, the author, as stated above, lovingly chronicles her journey through the year. And yet her journey is the pilgrimage of everyone, and to a larger extent, our journey through life itself.

As the last haiku in the book implies, the collection reveals "our own path in life" and reminds us that "nature remains through all change." HAIKU REFLECTIONS artfully calls readers to reflect on their own paths as they follow and observe the path of the author. This book is a poetic gem and is highly recommended.

5.0 su 5 stelle Wonderful! 4 ottobre 2013
Di lissa - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I have to say this collection is wonderful. Short burst of thoughts that when read sparely, is wonderful to your senses. I felt like these are my words, only they are put together much elegantly than I would have.

I like how it is divided into seasons. I like autumn the best, although the spring, summer & winter poems are just as wonderful. I also like the spaces ways the poems are placed on the pages which makes one want to read it slowly, which I think that is how poetry should be read - one slow line at a time.

I highly recommend this collection, if only to browse the thoughts of the author and catch some glances of your own thoughts elegantly put together.

4.0 su 5 stelle Beautiful Brevity 2 gennaio 2013
Di Jan Morrill - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
From the beautiful cover photo, to the elegant layout, to Geraldine Hartman's skill of placing the reader in the middle of the wonderment of each season, Haiku Reflections is a must read. What better way to feel the warmth of summer while in the chill of winter? To smell a fresh rain, while in the heated drought of summer?

I am always amazed when so much can be told in only seventeen syllables, and Ms. Hartman is gifted at telling a story with beautiful brevity.

5.0 su 5 stelle Calming and Reassuring ... Just What I Needed 5 marzo 2014
Di Elizabeth M Day - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
I've really enjoyed choosing a season (the haikus in this book are organized by seasons of the year) based on how my day is going. Am I feeling like winter, summer, spring, or fall? And then at different times during the day, I read one or two of the haikus from that season. Those thoughtful, poignant words give me so much in the moment. There's a great energy to these haikus -- they're calming, reassuring, and gentle. Beautiful book!
