children & bubbles: Haiku on Fatherhood


“In this collection of haiku, James Schlett captures moments reflecting the beauty of family, play, innocence and wonder, as lived by a child and witnessed by her father. She is the star of these poems and her father’s light down the haiku path.”
— Tom Sacramona (Former Editor, Frogpond)


“James Schlett has been blessed simultaneously with fatherhood and the instrument of haiku. In Children and Bubbles we have the immediate against a background of what the author anticipates offering as wisdom to his grown daughter. His discovery is how much she has taught him.”
— John Stevenson (Managing Editor, The Heron’s Nest)

“In James’s universe, every poem comes directly from the heart. This collection of haiku is a treasure of bonding poems for every parent!”
— Yu Chang (Author of seeds)
