As an active member of Millikin's vocal jazz ensemble, One Voice, Millkin's University Choir, and a First Year Experience Mentor, her life is filled to the brim with the hustle and bustle that comes with with it all, but she has found that writing haiku is something that helps her to open her mind and relax after a long day of classes and rehearsals.

Children in Haiku
415 Memory Lane
When trying to choose a title for this small collection, I decided that 415 Memory Lane was the perfect one. Since so many of my haiku are based on experiences from my past, what better road to choose to go down than Memory Lane? And because my room number is 415...well, you get the idea. This collection is comprised of what I feel are my best haiku of this year, and these are the haiku that mean the most to me. There are some that specifically refer to past experiences, but there are also some that I just liked the sound of. Because haiku is ever changing and ever evolving, it is impossible to say that this little book is truly complete, but for now, on this sixth day of December, it is just right for me . . . Happy Haiku-ing!
