timeless shoreline takes the reader on a journey from some of the well-known tourist spots to a few of the less travelled parts of Bali. The collection’s 49 haiku poems were captured in famous Bali locations such as, Mount Batur, Pinggan, Trunyan, Jatiluwih, West Bali National Park and Menjangan Island, the Monkey sanctuaries of Sangeh and Ubud, Denpasar, the markets and beaches of Canggu, Legian and Kuta, Uluwatu and Nusa Dua. The collection is illustrated with simple sketches that complement the text. It also has a map and a description of words from the text.
