The answer must be no! Consider the converse case. When we animate organic tissue, a finger, a hand, an arm, have we created a part of a human? The answer must also be emphatically no.” Quote from Hans Hoobler:"What is walking among us? What cooks our meals and cleans our houses? What cares for our children? What strange creatures are these?

Haiku Moments

Kristina Howells

Romance / Literature & Fiction / Mystery & Thrillers

For lovers of Haiku everywhere. Kristina Howells creates her first collection of 100 Haikus, all ranging from different themes.INTRODUCTIONLet me begin by telling you the story of my interaction with one of my cliens, well, patients, to illustrate the importance of this book. I was helping my patient who was in great physical and mental distress. She was so much in agony that she asked me to do anything and or give her anything to relieve her pain. This is because, before now she had been elsewhere without much help. She had tried many therapies without much success. Well, the story proceeded and she insisted on her demand. I told her that, “I can only give you what I have. What I have include what I know”. That is exactly where this book is heading. Writers write their books from experience and skilful abilities which may have been inherited: an experience that may flow from inspiration, instructions whatever their form, active lessons learnt in education, professional or personal tragedies and tri-umphs. My own understanding is not different. If anything, I have been through them all—bereavement and failings amongst others.I can only give you what I have, in poems and in other forms of words, from experience that I have acquired.Like my patients who ultimately found relief from my offering, I hope this book will serve as a great comfort to you, the readers.Now, the book is divided, broadly, into sections to make for easy search and access. Readers may discover that, life in general is a continuum. As such, while individual poems as sources of encouragement may be read individually, the poems as in, life may be read altogether.My target audience is just you who in times of need, you may requires simple words of encouragement to give you a boost. If my poems have resonated with you and help your personal situa-tion, then, I have achieved my aims.
