The spiritual path calls seekers to be mindful of the grace and beauty, as well as the pain and suffering, present in even the most mundane human life. From birth to enlightenment, the human journey to wholeness need not be taken alone; it is best taken in the company of wise, loving, and inspiring companions such as the authors. Their books can help readers capture the magic and enjoy the blessings the world offers, actively create and manage abundance, mourn, heal, and mend the broken places, and finally arrive at that most desired “peace that passes understanding.”
A mother cradling a tiny baby in her arms is an icon of peace. Yet today’s parents are often so overwhelmed by the pressures of daily life that many magical moments are missed. Baby Haiku distills the magic into three-line poems celebrating the wonder of new life. Written by Lily Wang, each haiku in this work is like a drop of clear water creating ripples of contentment throughout a busy day, and readers may be inspired to create their own poems in honor of such moments of shared peace and beauty.

Turn Parenting Experience into an Empowering Journey with Baby Haiku by Lily Wang
A newborn’s arrival in the world can be a frustrating and challenging time for new parents. Trying to understand a baby’s wants and needs is often complex, leaving parents exhausted and looking for answers.
Lily Wang has the solution with Baby Haiku, an innovative and powerful book of Haiku poetry perfect for the time-starved new parent. Combining the essence of Eastern and Western poetics, Wang creates an essential tool to help you understand your baby through the simplicity of Haiku.
Wang skillfully revives the role of poetry to delight and instruct. “The true motivation behind this little thin book,” Wang said, “is to make a better tomorrow for future generations by honoring what parents are doing today.”
Most parents are physically and materially ready for a baby’s arrival. But mental preparation is sometimes more difficult to obtain. Wang helps bridge this gap with her inspirational poems that speak deeply to a parent’s soul. Parents will learn how to relax and enjoy this special time, achieving a Zen-like existence in their chaotic lives.
Wang helps parents experience the true sense of significance associated with taking care of a baby. With Baby Haiku, parenthood becomes an empowering spiritual journey!
