Haiku from the asylum by David Rollins
Haiku from the asylum is a book of haiku poetry (each three lines, with a 5-7-5 syllable count). The asylum in question is the Bradgate mental health hospital in Leicester, England, in which the author wrote the haiku.
Each haiku poem reflects one small story written at the time and in the now, to use the Japanese idea. The reader should be able to glimpse a small snapshot of what life was and is like in todays mental health hospitals, and what life is like as a person with mental health issues.
Both as a poetry book and as a look at mental health the book makes interesting reading and I hope that you enjoy it.
