AFTER offering profound and practical tips on writing in his bestselling book Write Here, Write Now: Standing At Attention Before My Imaginary Style Dictator, noted lifestyle editor and bestselling author AA Patawaran is set to release his latest book on Hai[na]ku and Other Poems.

Hai[na]ku and Other Poems is a collection of poetry inspired by life’s most engrossing themes: love and pain, solitude and reflection, arrivals and departures, and the tenuous threads that make up everyday life, with elegant, picturesque, and sublime poetic visuals by Love Marie “Heart” Ongpauco-Escudero.

Patawaran shared that his fascination with poetry started as a playful attempt to caption his Instagram photos, until he fully fell in love with its rhythm, cadence, and beat.

Hai[na]ku and Other Poems is available for P499 in National Book Store and Powerbooks and online at
