Luz Del Mes Tri-lingual Anthology is an extraordinary literary collaborative effort of 30 authors from around the world. When I was invited to participate in the project, I immediately agreed as the book uses Haiku Poetry to teach themes on the environment and spirituality. The prologue by Japanese Professor Masashi Nakamura is remarkable. It reminds us of Shinto teachings which are the essence of life is connecting with nature and spirit to evolve as a human race. I found the multicultural traditions shared by the talented authors simple, authentic, and fascinating all at once. The poetry and traditions will fill your heart space and increase awareness of the importance of being in tune with nature, spirituality, and more importantly preserving cultural traditions for our families. I gave the book five brilliant stars. My hope is others will open their hearts to the love and peace this Anthology offers in three languages (English, Spanish, and Greek). Congratulations to Maritza M. Mejia and the amazing authors who contributed to this astonishing Tri-lingual literary work.
