Falling Poems – is a collective project promoting poetry in all it’s forms.
Although Falling Poems is kick starting with a Haiku collection Book, Falling Poems promotes all Genres of fiction literature. Falling Poems is for poets and writers of fictional literature, the world to notice. Its hard to be a writer in a loud world. No one hears your voice, or even your thoughts, unless you write it down, but even that depends on people reading your words, because groups have become virtual and conversations have become edited. I want this book to be a place where Haiku gets the honor it deserves, bringing back the respect for nature and human. “Laat hy val waar hy wil!”
