Written by a Realtor who is also a poet and novelist, Homeowner Haiku elegantly encapsulates the often enervating process of the real estate transaction. These brief flashes, a perfect calming gift for anyone buying or selling a home, satisfy and challenge the reader with vivid images and pithy insights, as in this sample: "Dream house / we see our / children climbing the pear tree / that's not yet planted." Sherry Karver's artwork expands the experience of poems like "Zen and the Art of Homeownership" and "Those Little Voices" that run the gamut from comic to elegiac.
