Once in the World is an exploration of ephemeral moments that emerge in the form of stillness, subtle actions and dramatic events. Inspired by the 16th century Japanese tradition of haiku poetry, Terrance Brooks Boykin creates a travelogue of compact poems that mirror the stages of human existence in ways that illuminate the juxtaposition between the small and momentary and the cosmic and eternal. Boykin celebrates the heart and mysteries of nature by dividing the book into four chapters; birth, maturity, wisdom and new world. Once in the World unites haiku’s subtle moments with the various stages of life, while accentuating the deep relationship between the unfolding of time and our ability to perceive and experience it. The art of haiku can fundamentally change our perceptions, while instilling in us the spirit of appreciation and humility toward the realm of nature. These miniature poems explore the vastness of nature, while celebrating the people, places and things that interconnect in the world.
