Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: There is no greater gift than the gift of life. For this, we owe our parents an eternal debt of gratitude. This collection of English language haiku and related forms is a celebration of mothers and fathers. Contributors from around the globe pay homage to their dear parents as well as stepparents, in-laws, and parent substitutes like mentors. May the poets and artists here help you to count the myriad ways in which your mother and father have nurtured, supported, and enriched your world in both big and small ways. Even if things between you and your parents have been difficult at times, the poems in these pages might prompt you to open your heart, paving the way for forgiveness or reconciliation. It's never too late to take a breath, contemplate your love and appreciation, or realize - despite their human frailties - the true blessing your mother and father have been in your life.
