Haiku Landscapes is about the changes in weather and seasons in Scandinavian nature.

A haiku poem conveys the feeling of a particular time and place rather than describing it, and traditionally it contains a kigo, a word or phrase that indicates a specific season. The form is restrained and follows strict grammatical rules. When read repeatedly, the poem turns into a meditative rhythm.

Haiku Landscapes pays tribute to the ordinary and often neglected in nature. It is about capturing that one short moment we fail to notice. About observing it and finding beauty in the unexpected.
