Dream Poet For Hire services are open with a new season of abundance… I’ve been on the road for the last 2 months, heading from Philadelphia down to New Orleans and now out to New Mexico. I collected a lot of postcards and wrote a ton of haikus along the way. I’m stoked to share them with you.

“From sweet mountain spring
youth finds an entry point, and
restores our lifeforce.“
Stephanie B. and I are halfway through our regional tour of PA, NJ, and NY. Besides a wall of TVs, video projections, a suitcase full of books (old and new), and a binder full of old writing, here is where I’ve found my power, my flow, my grounding.
Depicted are the gems I carry in my heart pocket, a tiny notebook wherein I write haikus and passing thoughts during lulls in the road, and a copy of my new book Travel By Haiku which I’ve been reading across the states over the last week.
Next up is a reading in Flemington, NJ and two readings in Brooklyn.

Hey, this is a neat surprise. Travel By Haiku is currently the “#1 New Release in Haiku & Japanese Poetry”. Now, I think this says more to how few new haiku books there are put out per day than me suddenly becoming a bestselling author, but I still appreciate the algorithm that offered up this little photo-op. Thanks everyone who grabbed a copy yesterday!
If you haven’t yet, go score one for yourself or as a gift for someone special and help me stay up there on the “hot new releases” list. You can get your copy here: http://bit.ly/TravelByHaiku
Very excited to announce the release of my first poetry collection, TRAVEL BY HAIKU, released on A Freedom Books, and available now here: http://bit.ly/TravelByHaiku
Grab your copy today!
Travel By Haiku: Volumes 1-5, Still Trippin’ Across The States is a collection of haikus that I wrote over the last two years while traveling from coast to coast across the country. Follow my poetic form, Marshall Deerfield, as he drives through deserts, over mountains, past oceans, and into the setting sun. Each haiku will transport you to a place closer to our native earth.
From Sage Kohen, author of Seeds of Illumination:
“Marshall Deerfield takes us beyond the horizon of hope with Travel By Haiku and reveals the wild, wonderous places (within and without) where freedom still reigns.”
Thank you to everyone who made this possible and supported me along the way! Can’t wait to take you on the road with me in reading this poetry.
“The whole land is just
a bunch of boulders that fell
into that big sea.”
