A hermit amidst society, Akira G. Sternberg is a scholar and observer of human activity. Conceived on an oil supertanker off the coast of Japan and born on a mountainous island in Greece, Akira has been a man of letters by birth and a man of action by choice.

A pragmatic romanticist at heart, his vision for a global human civilization of the stars is what keeps him awake at night and his glass of brandy semi-empty.

The Stargazing Frog is his first published collection of haiku and other 3-liners in the English language. You may find him at social media under @akirasternberg or at his website https://akira.setimprint.com, where he propagates his views about the upcoming space age.

It was my long held wish to travel in space and walk amongst the stars.

Now, drifting afloat in space, my shuttle lost and far away, only I can hear my screams, till I’ll no longer be able to breathe.

A 'writer's block' is something that will inevitably happen to everyone, at some point during their progress of work.

My way of dealing with it is just to accept it, do not let it dull my spirit, and do not fight it. I know that I have to and that I will definitely compensate for the lost time the moment the block is raised.

I usually direct my attention in some other task. Up to this day I haven't faced a 'multi-purposed block', so there are always things to occupy your mind and spirit with. I have noticed that if you do not get frustrated about a 'block' but just try to enjoy yourself with another project, the 'block' just withers and dies.

121 rules for sovereignty.

The following 121 rules for a sovereign life are based on many sources and on many philosophies. Nevertheless, all 121 of them share three common threads: an affirmative approach toward life, a deeply responsible stance against living, and an unconditional love for freedom.

“Do poems shine
like stars on the night sky?
Do frogs reside
in ponds outside of time?
All we have is deeds
and dreams to live by —
Only with great zeal
to stars you may fly!”
Akira Sternberg, The Stargazing Frog: A poetry collection of 366 original haiku about nature, humans and stars

“Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the more often and steadily we reflect upon them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me. I do not seek or conjecture either of them as if they were veiled obscurities or extravagances beyond the horizon of my vision; I see them before me and connect them immediately with the consciousness of my existence.”
Immanuel Kant, Critique of Practical Reason

“Do poems shine
