WASP SHADOWS

Author: Ben Moeller-Gaa

Calligrapher: JS Graustein

Genre: Poetry; Haiku

Length: 23 pages

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

* I received a free paperback copy of WASP SHADOWS through the Goodreads Giveaway program.

This is a collection of twenty haiku poems. They have been beautifully presented in calligraphy by JS Graustein.

I have never been a huge fan of haiku because I find that they usually make little or no sense to me. However Ben Moeller-Gaa’s haiku are different. They actually make sense.

Each haiku is a snippet of a moment in time. The poet may use only a few words, but those words have power. They contain the power to invoke a specific scene or feeling in the audience.

The only complaint I have about this book is it’s short length. With only twenty haiku this book takes very little time to read.

I rate this book as 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
