About the Book :
Haiku, Tanka and One line poems are difficult genres but Linda Ashok practices it with ease. She demonstrates a rare confidence and competence, with good grasp of its form and spirit. She writes haiku not as mere empty words, or three lines in 5-7-5 syllables count to moralize, but to be herself, to convey her perception, experience and desire sensuously. Linda relates various physical events in her life to elevate the spirit. She recreates what she perceives deep within. Nature is naturally closer to her and solitude is tenderly creative.
