A definitive collection of 194 haiku that brings together a plethora of diverse natural, cultural, and geographical influences from Navarro's life as a wandering poet-philosopher and minister emphasizing a love of nature and mindfulness.
Navarro draws on a lifetime of learning haiku (40 years), beginning at 19 years old when he discovered its origins in the heart of ancient Chinese poetry (Sensai and Hõ Un); through the quintessential influences of the four great Japanese hokku/haiku masters, Basho, Buson, Issa, and Shiki.
Readers will find everything from traditional English language 5-7-5 haiku, to more modern renditions with fewer syllables, some gendai haiku, semantic disjunctions, and even some senryu. Navarro's haiku are thoroughly steeped in modern American nature, culture, geography, and tradition. He brings haiku to life in a way that is relatable and accessible to the modern reader while faithfully maintaining the sharp visual nature of the form.
An influential haiku book which has made an impact on the haiku community and among academic researchers.
GRIPPING DARK AUSTRALIAN STORY
In the distance a man watches her
Perfect she stands on the beach
Wavelets lapping at her feet
He desires her, he will charm her
She will come with him like others
Where are those others now?
She goes with him, travelling to distant places
They walk all alone in a land of bright sunlight
She sees not the shadows hiding in the dark
Awful secrets emerge - she knows she must escape.
But she is trapped with him in the middle of nowhere.
Her hands and feet are tied. She is a captive.
He is taking her to a place of huge crocodiles.
She fears she will vanish inside them forever!
How could it have come to this?

Lockdown Life is a humorous and reflective snapshot of the unique period called 'Lockdown'. 2020 brought us the great global event that resulted in seven billion people on the planet being sent to the confines of their homes amidst the pandemic, some to homes padded with toilet paper and others with cupboards full of dry pasta!
Split into three parts, this book is designed to help you spot 'Lockdown Personalities', explore 'Lockdown Activities' and reflect on 'Lockdown Lessons'. Did you know that the Lockdown Roadman's hobby of chatting up women outside Iceland was classed as 'essential work'? Did you catch that glass of brandy your child's teacher was drinking off-screen during the English lesson on Shakespeare?
Lockdown made introverts (Intros) scream with joy and extroverts (Extros) quake in their boots as they were forced out of the pubs and clubs. It made parents appreciate teachers and the public appreciate the NHS, and some tapped into gifts and talents they didn't even know they had. But what can we gain from this time? Can humanity learn and grow?
Dive in and join us as we explore love, laughter and freedom amongst one of the most challenging times of humanity.
Being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes can be a very frightening and worrying experience, not only for the person themselves, but also for their loved ones. Having your child diagnosed can feel truly devastating, the moment you find out that they will have to inject insulin for the rest of their lives, or they will die, is beyond heart-breaking. Type 1 diabetes doesn't discriminate between race, religion, or how you were brought up, it can affect anyone from the superrich to the super-poor. Dealing with diagnosis can be just as hard as dealing with the disease itself, and coming to terms with it can take a very long time. This book tells the story of my son as he was diagnosed, from how my wife and I as parents saw the early signs, to our journey through diagnosis, then on to living with a type 1 child. I wrote this not as a means to help people medically deal with the disease(however I do highlight several things that we do to control it), but to show those that are going through the same experience - you are not alone, and things do get better. This book is for all the type 1 diabetic warriors in this world, and those who care for them.
"An Englishman in the Seminole War," was published by The Florida Historical Society and is available directly from the FHS and from Amazon.
The book is a memoir based upon the letters of John Bemrose, edited by Randal J. Agostini, who is John’s great great grandson. John Bemrose came to America from England as an unaccompanied 16 year-old in 1831. He served in the US Army as a dedicated hospital steward during the Second Seminole War.
Bemrose documented his five years in America in a series of sixty letters written to his eldest son, Weightman between November 1863 and May 1866.
John Bemrose provides unique descriptions of nineteenth century St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Micanopy, and other locations. He offers personal observations of Florida's diverse populations, and key figures of the Seminole War. Bemrose recounts dramatic battles, difficult marches through the Florida wilderness and the challenging life of a soldier in the 1830’s.
This exciting memoir, written as a first person narrative, provides valuable new insights into Florida history and culture from An Englishman in the Seminole War.”
