A peaceful and deeply engaging collection of haiku poems with nature photographs. By juxtaposing some haiku with photographs the meaning is expanded beyond their individual parts. Makes a wonderful gift book as it is beautifully produced on gloss art paper. In addition to the book, the author’s website at www.roderickayres.com provides further engaging thought and information on the content of Tossed Pebbles, Living Words & Images. Some haiku examples:

 

Suddenly the moon

and the wind is alight

this night of snow

 

From each oar spinning

small silent whirlpools

thoughts of lovers

 

Water’s surface

reflections silver

into minnows

 

Roderick Ayres has won a Daichu Temple International Haiku Award (Japan) and has won a Boulevard magazine photographic contest. His haiku and photographs are subtly moving and speak with the full intuition of the Zen mind.
