Haikus for Life: Live, Love and Laugh With Passion (Paperback)
Steve is a father and husband who decided to start running again after a three-year hiatus. He took his Chow Chow-Shiba Inu mix dog, Koa, along with him on his daily runs. Within a month, he started to connect with nature, appreciating the birds, trees, flowers, ocean, sun rises and sunsets. Then, he started to form haiku poems in his mind as he ran. His lovefest for nature and haikus led him to get carried away with his running. Before he knew it, he was running eight, nine and ten miles. He started running in July 2011 and is still running in 2013 with Koa and writing haiku poems every day. His life has become more spiritual than before. Steve has three more books slated for publication in 2013, but he hopes to publish a minimum of five books this year. His book has been well-received by its first reviewers, giving him 4 and 5-star ratings. Steve's poetry was deeply personal to him and he hopes that you'll savor every line and every haiku slowly, like fine wine. He wants you to take a moment and feel the message, what does it mean to you? Can you relate to it somewhere in your life's journey thus far? Mostly, Steve hopes his words will help you heal spiritually.
Steven A.Yagyagan, is also a SAG member (Steven Kane). He has done voiceovers, body double and background work. His love and preference is in doing voiceovers because he gets to create a character that people can only imagine and because he'd rather remain somewhat visually unseen. He is of mixed Pacific-Asian-European descent. Born and reared on a sugar plantation in Waialua, Hawai'i, he has been working on his books for some twenty-plus years. This year, he has a total of four books to be publish, Haikus For Life, being the first of the four. The other three books are, My Amazing Divine Mercy Experience, Prince of the Plantation and Haikus For Life Vol. 2, which will include poems he wrote in 2012. Haikus For Life came about through his love for running with Mother Nature. After a three-year hiatus, he started running again in 2011. He began to reacquaint himself with the sights, sounds, smells, texture and in some cases, tastes of nature's beauty. He then started take snapshots of what he saw and felt. Haiku poems began to flow naturally through his heart and soul. He kept a personal blog updated daily. The result, Haikus For Life! Steve is deeply spiritual, although he enjoys writing music, playing music with his friends in their band, Da 2nd Wind Band. He relishes living every moment of his life to the fullest with his wife, children and closest friends. Otherwise, he is a very private person. It is in his private moments that he collects his thoughts of the day and expresses them in poetry and in song. Watch for his upcoming books: 1. The Divine Mercy: An Amazing Journey 2. Prince of the Plantation 3. Haikus for Life - Volume 2 4. Haikus For Life - Volume 3 Steve now resides in Chula Vista, CA with his wife, Regina (the Queen Mum) and their two children, Matthew (Gift from God) and Gabrielle (God's Strength).
