Finding new inspiration, J.B. Conway has revisited his passion for poetry and cultivated his fervor for Disney with Mouse of Zen. Always having been creative, Conway turned to writing as an outlet. His enthusiasm and love for Disney was rekindled after he witnessed Cinderella's Castle through his young children's eyes in 2006, creating a turning point in his life. Mouse of Zen was a natural progression of a love of poetry, the simplicities and complexities of the natural Japanese art form known as haiku, and a rapidly growing fascination with the entire Disney universe. This collection of Disney inspired, mouse-sized poetry envelops all feelings, sights, sounds, smells, beauty, love, and passion found deep in the nooks and crannies of Disney parks, movies, and attractions. These invigorating works of art will appeal to and offer a fresh perspective to the magic found in us all.

Mar 30, 2011The perfect gift for any Disney fan, JB Conway's book of poetry captures the spirit of all things Mouse. Thoughtfully captured in three little lines, this book of haiku take the reader of a delightful journey through the simple beauty which can be found all around the Disney properties. Many a fan is accustomed to the hustle and bustle of DIsney but these quiet reflections help you take a moment to find the magic every day. This first edition of "Mouse Sized" poetry is a delightful find and a fabulous introduction to poetry for adults and children alike. As a homeschooling mom, my daughter studied Conway's Mickey Haiku and was inspired to write her own.
Oct 22, 2010Take a love for poetic expression, a passion for the specific form of Haiku and an epiphany experiencing Disney through the eyes of one's own children...add pen and paper and stir. What do you get? Mouse of Zen, a Disney inspired book of Mouse-sized poetry. J.B. Conway has put together 351 beautiful haiku to express his experience of Disney and in sharing these poems has opened a door for all of us to reflect on our Disney experiences from this perspective. With the number of poems in this book you could easily choose almost one haiku per day or you could devour pages at a time. There is sure to be something in here that touches you. J. B.'s haiku are beautiful, funny and in a few cases downright saucy. Many of them sing with the romance that is part of the magic of Disney. Some of them will make you think, some of them will make you relate, all of them will make you appreciate that there is more than one correct way to experience Disney. Buy this book. It's a great gift for any... More > Disney Fan...or for yourself!< Less

Sep 27, 2010Being a HUGE Disney fan, I am always trying to find something new to make me feel excited and ready for another Disney trip. I bought this book, and I have to say, I can't WAIT to get back to The World. Brad has put his heart and soul on paper and truly makes you feel like you are looking through he and his kid's eyes. It's amazing. Even if you have never personally experienced what he speaks of, you feel like you know exactly what he is talking about. The poems are short, but so powerful. A must have and must read for anyone who understands how magical Disney can be. Even if you aren't a Disney fanatic, get this book. I bet after reading Brad's beauties, you'll be well on your way to becoming one.
Sep 27, 2010Brad Conway has been a police officer since 1998. He is passionate about anything Disney. Like many of us, Brad's passion for Disney started when he brought his children to Walt Disney World for the first time. Something magical happens when you walk through those gates and see the faces of your children light up! I learned about haiku in my modern literature class when I was in high school and we were required to write our own. I had a very difficult time with it but I managed to write one as it was part of our grade. I had not re-visited them until I saw one of Brad's haiku posted on a Disney Blog that I frequently read. I was completely enamored by this wonderful poetry for a couple of reasons. First of all, Brad's poetry was all about my very favorite topic, Disney! Secondly, I knew how difficult it was for me to write just one haiku and this man had lots of them! Wow, what a talent! Brad has taken 351 of his haiku and published a book of them for us all to enjoy. The book is both... More > intriguing and inspiring in so many ways. When you read these haiku, you can close your eyes and imagine the exact place he has in mind when he wrote the haiku. It really is amazing. Some of them take a while to figure out, and that, I have to say, is half the fun! His book is a must-own for any true Disney fan. It will be on my coffee table in the near future! He's already well underway toward publishing his second book.< Less
