Odyssey Into Nothingness haiku n senryu

Author Name: Joe Sebastian | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

‘Odyssey into Nothingness’ is Joe Sebastian’s (Olassa), second Japanese-inspired haiku and senryu collection, which celebrates the brevity and poesy of this miniature art form by observing and experiencing nature and humans in splendorous ways. This often leads to that moment of epiphany, resulting in introspection on the inevitable march of seasons, birth, youthfulness, longing, courtship, loneliness, and death, the inexorable cycle of the cosmos and life and the myriad feelings it engenders in any sensitive soul.
