Vickie Johnstone

Author Vickie Johnstoneabout this book: Life's Rhythms is a collection of 316 haiku.

The poems are composed in a three-line, 5-7-5 syllable pattern. Their subjects include: nature, life, food, animals, loss, love, longing, hope, the seasons, dreams and time. Sometimes I've just imagined a character in a certain scene or leaves falling, or small things like that. I only began writing haiku in earnest last year when I came across someone's site, where you could write some verses according to their prompts. That sparked a little obsession with haiku. All of the poems were written from 2011-12.

• "I feel the trees swaying, birds and squirrels playing. Reading her poems was like that, inspiring, heartfelt and full of wonder." — Patricia Kemp Blackmon

• "There are bits of sad reality mixed in with joyful beauty to form little threads of reflections on life. Some of them I found profoundly and beautifully sad." — Ed Drury

• "Vickie's words are picturesque. I could 'feel' the rain as it fell on the leaves and remember how green smells when the rain touches the earth." — Ey Wade
