I have only started writing haiku this year. However, in a short period I feel like I have come into my own with haiku. The title of this collection is based on one of my very first haiku. While it was one of my first, it is one that holds a great deal of meaning to me. This collection is composed of the haiku considered the best by myself, friends, and family. My haiku are usually a personal reflection on my life or pondering the lives of others.
Trista, even from the beginning, seemed to know the very soul of haiku. She pairs together images and feelings that create not only a picture, but a story. Her haiku will make you feel a variety of emotions and evoke memories that have been dear to your heart or dreaded by your mind. I sincerely hope you enjoy remembering anything that has made your soul sigh.
