This awesome haiku poem book is written by two of the greatest known haiku poets, Stoianka Boianova and Minko Tanev, from Bulgaria.

This distinguished haiku inspirational book is written in two parts. The first by, Stoianka Boianova (СТОЯНКА БОЯНОВА), and second by, Minko Tanev (МHNKO TAHEB) her husband. The poems in each are listed categorical in sections and flow wonderfully well.

The first section of this remarkable haiku inspirational poetry book is titled, “Fragrance Valleys.” The first haiku poem reminds me of an awe-inspiring scene in the Sinai Desert while serving with the Multi-National Force. It’s a site which suddenly appeared in full view upon cresting a hill and was so beautiful. Immediately, there is life created by the Creator instead of sand dunes as follows:
feeling of homeland
roads through mountains
on the horizon
Here Stoianka give a vision from a mountainous view where she feels her homeland based on her observation of nature while traveling the roads through mountainous areas. Such an inspirational vision from the senses—Sensitizingly Specular!
The imagery of God’s creation is precious, especially when its displayed as wonderful flowers. Roses, daffodils, and tulips are so beautiful and emit pleasing fragrances stimulating the senses They are delightful creations of God. This is exemplified in the following haiku poem:
dew in the flowers
in every drop I can see
the image of God
Her words in this haiku uplifts the soul, with refreshing eloquence, especially in the mornings when one is able to see drips of dews off flowers from the beam of the golden rays of the sun.
The second section titled, “Splash of Water.” It has a variety of poems reflecting such marvelous essence. The first haiku is symbolic of travelling at sea as follows:
an autumn leaf
travels on the river
a raft to the sea
Her imaginative skills and symbology show a leaf as a raft travelling at sea, while it’s flowing down a river. Such magnificent use of comparing and contrasting words with visual metaphors.
The next haiku poem places one right on the beach. Such pleasurable sights, are se
