Writing and reading haiku has started a revolution in my heart. Sharing our haiku became a contest while at the same time we had a support group who understood what it was like to write and read haiku. I have enjoyed writing haiku specifically for the global haiku seminar; however, this revolution is not limited to homework.
I have had the distinct need to write a haiku, either on paper or in my head, immediately after having an interesting experience. My own experiences are the best jump-start to writing a haiku for me. These experiences are anything from late night encounters, crazy and spontaneous moments, and overall wonderful moments. All of the haiku in this book are from an experience, regardless of whether they were bad or good, they all are a part of who I am today.
