A writer inspired by nature and human nature


My sincere thanks to talented author and poet Balroop Singh for sharing her reflections on my latest poetry and photography collection, MY MAINE. I invite you to visit her website (link below) to read the entire review. While you’re there, be sure to check out Balroop’s inspirational books–you’ll be glad you did. ~Bette A. Stevens 

MY MAINE Wandering through woods COLLECTION

“There was a time when I didn’t understand Haiku. I thought anybody could write those three lines, which hardly evoke any emotion till I tried to write this form and stumbled; till I came across brilliant haiku! My prejudice fell apart, as I started exploring more about this form of poetry.

“The inspiration came from my blogger friend Bette A. Stevens who evoked my interest with her brilliant haiku that she keeps sharing at her blog. My Experiments with Haiku seem to fade into insignificance when I read My Maine: Haiku through the Seasons by Bette Stevens. There are some books that leave a profound impact on you, that stay with you long after you have read the last page. Bette’s new release is one such book and I would like to share my reflections about this book..”

    • Thank you, Larry. 🙂 The cricket chorus is waning and our 51st monarch headed southwest on it’s journey to Mexico yesterday. Autumn is beginning to whisper its tune. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by for a visit!
