Insomnia, this collection of haiku and senryu, follows an insomniac from morning to night and from season to season as he treks an invisible trail, laid out step by step from the void. Although the collection emerged from wakeful nights, the poems evoke positive emotions and smiles and joy simultaneously. By permeating the inner mind with enlightenment, the images with cheerful plays on words in this volume become your friends and even give life to your sleepless hormone when you experience them just as they are. Reading this book, you find yourself standing before the beauty, the precious gift of life, love and power by the Unseen. Suffering sleep disorder or not, this is the book for you.

Ernesto P. Santiago spends all his free time between here and there, trying to learn something. He is too small for his ego. He is enough for himself. His verse has been widely published and anthologised, in prints and online. He lives in Greece, where he still continues to explore the poetic myth of his senses, and has recently become interested in the study of haiku and its related forms.
