Here starts the journey
Every day for the past six years, Tyler Knott Gregson has written a simple haiku about love, and posted it online. These heartfelt poems have attracted a large and loyal following around the world. This highly anticipated follow-up to Chasers of the Light, presents Tyler’s favorites, some previously unpublished, accompanied by his signature photographs, which capture the rich texture of daily life.
This vibrant collection reveals the intimate reflections of one of poetry’s most popular new voices — honest, vulnerable, generous, and truly present in the gift that is each moment.
Two years ago I was first exposed to Tyler Knott Gregson’s work when I was sent a copy of his compilation, Chasers of the Light: Poems From the Typewriter Series by the publisher and ever since then I have been hooked on his work. I follow his Tumblr, and each day run across his haikus, which I took a particular liking to so when I was contacted about reading a compilation of a bunch of his haikus, I may have jumped up and down with joy. Literally.
TKG has such a way with words and expressing love in so many different ways and forms. He writes about love in such a way that I had never really considered or comprehended before, but once I read it, its like something clicks in me and I have that lightbulb moment where I say, “oh yeah!”
When you get down to the basis of it, his haikus are beautiful. It’s beautifully written poetry with beautiful pictures and beautiful font (I have a particular fondness for typewriter font; probably is why I got my tattoo done with the same font). I reread this twice already because I couldn’t get enough of the words that he was pouring out onto the page.
Feeling down? Pick this up. It will help you soothe your mind and distract you from reality. What I find particularly interesting about his writing and poems as well is that love can seem so general, but he writes in such a way as if it’s only for me and what I’m experiencing. I say keep up the awesome and beautiful work, TKG. I can’t wait to see more from you in the future.
