Haiku are unrhymed poems consisting of about 17 syllables spread over three lines. This poetry form started in Japan and has been very popular in many countries around the world for decades. Haiku force you to be concise. They teach you impactfulness. As such, they are the embodiment of the "Show don't tell" technique. A technique that allows readers to experience stories in a more personal and meaningful manner.
"Walks: A Collection of Haiku (Volume 1)" is not just a celebration of Cendrine Marrouat's love for haiku. It is also an invitation to enjoy the flitting moments that make life beautiful...
"Cendrine's haiku are the best I've read so far. I strongly recommend the book to everyone." - Isabel Nolasco (Photographer)
"Haiku are traditionally difficult to write in a meaningful way, because most writers are limited by the rules of the form. Not Marrouat. She uses the form like a master, crafting her own word combinations to dance within the beats of the Haiku." - Katrina Moody (Writer & Editor)
