Haiku Nation by P.J. Reed is a collection of poetic images exploring life in Devon throughout the different seasons. This book is a collection of special moments, witnessed and frozen in time through the medium of formal haiku and senryu verse.

the august sorrows
crumbling cream rose petals fall
stolen by the breeze

dragonfly flutters
wings of finest cobweb silk
seen we walk away

I am loneliness
the kind moon watches and sends
me a shadow friend

The Review-
“The poems of 'Haiku Nation' offer an intoxicating insight into the ethereal world of haiku...Highly recommended for haiku poetry lovers and for readers in general. A very enjoyable and warm book. Even the dark pieces of work trigger strong emotions. A follow-up volume would be most welcome. Spread the word, P.J. Reed is the haiku poet to read. A contemporary of Vanessa Daou." by Nick Armbrister

Do you things dark and deadly?

The Wicked Come by P.J. Reed

'Ideal for lovers of the dark and deadly. Beautifully written, horror poems.'

The Wicked Come is a collection of dark romantic, fantasy and Gothic horror poetry from the speculative writer and poet P.J. Reed.
The poems in this collection are beautifully descriptive, well-crafted snapshots of the lives of people inhabiting the shadowlands of civilized society.

This collection is an exploration of the darker side of humanity. The consequences of one-sided love affairs and how obsession can easily turn to murder. It explores the aftermath of when sanity crashes against madness.

Readers of P.J. Reed’s work are introduced to a variety of characters inhabiting a dystopian society: the gourmet detective, the doctor with unusual hobbies, the unnatural gardener, and the too ardent lovers. Each character has their own dark tale to share, their lives unraveling before the reader in minimalistic, deadly verses.

The Reviews-
'An evil little book featuring the strange and sinister. I really enjoyed these wicked little poems.' by S.

Catch the beauty of the English Spring with ‘Haiku Yellow.’

Haiku Yellow is a breathtaking collection of stunning images captured and written in haiku verse from the contemporary English poet P.J. Reed.
This collection explores the excitement and drama as the yellow of springtime bursts through the bleakness of winter throughout the Devon countryside in a series of dramatic moments captured forever in her fresh, crisp verse.

a frowning sky smiled
people burst from houses tails
wagging in the sun

earth salutes the sun
the yellowness of springtime
painted on the green

P.J. Reed has looked into the beauty of the world reborn and clothed in yellow springtime glory. This study has resulted in a series of outstanding word pictures, thoughts and emotions written in the timeless elegance of formal haiku. The world in springtime is a joyful place full of possibilities and hope,

a lone daffodil
waiting by a muddied lane
first touches of spring

green fresh wrapped petals
burst through tired hedgerows bank
impetuous youth

Haiku Yellow is the third book in P.J. Reed's seasonal haiku collection.

Presenting my new poetry book - 'Flicker.'

Flicker is a collection of senryu and haiku poetry I have written over the past two years. This collection celebrates the great selection of interesting characters you meet in Devon, with their stories woven into a poetic tapestry featuring the rugged beauty of the Devon countryside.

The blurb
"Flicker is a combination of haiku and senryu, combined and updated for the modern audience. In this collection, P.J. Reed has brought together a series of poetic postcards entwining the ever-changing nature of the Devon countryside with the lives of the people she has met in her travels throughout the county, creating a fascinating representation of humanity and nature.

This collection is beautifully illustrated with colour paintings.

An idea gift for poetry lovers everywhere."
