Haiku Through a Lens, by Kevin J Mackey, is a collection of poems inspired by photos taken with the author's cell phone. This is all but a pretentious book. The pictures are simple and the poems reach out to the reader, in a warm and friendly way, such as:

A painted reality
Tell me - aren't they all?

Kevin shares his wisdom too, when talking to us:

Respite from the rain
Fill your lungs with breath, with warmth
And your heart also

Beautiful prose + stunning photography = An all-around work of art.

While I originally read this on my Kindle, I went back and downloaded the computer app so I could view the photography in color. I may have to pick up a paper copy... to show off.

Photography and Haiku, exquisitely melded in a synchronicity of sight and thought. I found it to be serene, thought-provoking, and beautiful. Everyone should own a copy of this.
