Time Travel Haiku
There are these moments, sometimes they are strange and sometimes they are beautiful and sometimes they are ugly but they are all so nice to be enjoyed in the simplicity of a haiku. It is refreshing to take flourishing words out of the equation and to just see this moment bright and clear through the lens of another human being. I think that is why I love haiku so much. It is a way for people to connect and to remember all these human experiences that shape us. These snapshots and glimpses of life fade very quickly in the mind, but a haiku can preserve them and document them in a way that really makes you remember that moment. It brings all of those moments back through your senses. I have a terrible memory for only being a 20 year old and I want to use haiku to bring me back to those moments and completely immerse me in them but with simplicity. I don't need the haiku to tell me exactly what happened every second, I just need to jog my memory and help me to go back to that place. Haiku is my time travel, through my own life and through other haiku writers all over the nation, or even the world. So, time travel with me.
