In the short exposure to the art of haiku that I have taken part of, I feel I've managed to find a style that speaks to my audience about who I am. I have found a certain amount of ease when writing on the whimsical. Objects from my childhood, experiences with my children, and those things that are considered lighthearted. I felt that a collection of my best work related to these subjects would be appropriate.
This left me with one issue—finding an fitting title and picture. I quickly came upon a photo of my youngest son, recently taken by my wife. It is an impressive photo of my son's face, focusing on his eyes and freckles. The title comes from this style of photo, known as "catchlights". I truly hope that anyone reading this collection finds as much enjoyment in reading as I have writing these haiku.
