A lovely review from Willow for Midnight Haiku…
A Year In Contemplation Midnight Haiku. This is much more than a book it is a beacon of light and wisdom. I read it in one sitting and found it delightful. Every Haiku or set of Haiku has a beautiful accompanying photo. Sue Vincent’s words take us on a magical journey through life.
I am re-reading now, in-between cooking and cleaning and writing. Each turn of the page teaches me a little more. A beautiful book from a beautiful person.
The photographs and the three hundred and sixty five poems within this book collate a year’s journey in poetry through the seasons and the intermingled landscape of mind, body and spirit.

The poems were originally published as “midnighthaiku” every night at the appropriate time, leaving behind, like Cinderella, a trace of a day’s passing and a glimmer of the day yet to come.
Each poem can be read alone and simply ‘on the surface’. Many can be read in sequences that add an extra dimension to the wider human tale contained within these pages.
But each poem has its own layers of meaning too, waiting to be discovered by those who turn their attention to the heart.
