My name is Doug Sherrill, and I'm a pre-vet student at Millikin University. I wasn't really much of a poet, and I've never really had a penchant for it, but I've always enjoyed reading poetry. That's why I decided to take the course on haiku here at Millikin, and honestly, it's a choice I'm glad I made. I've enjoyed so much of it, and I've done things that I never thought I could. My haiku are a means for me to branch out to the people around me and to express myself and my appreciation for what's around me.
