Have you ever had a moment so full of wonder that it gave you peace? Have you ever had a moment so welcoming that you said to yourself, “This is where I belong”?

In SANCTUARY, these moments and more are captured in over 100 haiku – a Japanese style of short form poetry.

Each poem asks the reader to embrace it for what it is.

Some are joyous, some are funny. Others are sad, others are lonely. But every single one was written to inspire imagery, emotion, and thought.

Where will you find your haven? Where do you belong? Where is your…sanctuary?
