Haiku is an art. A form of poetry that is short and sweet, yet full of emotion. Haiku is created to generate a reader's response by expression of the author's thoughts, feelings and experiences.
I am a unique individual who has lived life and experienced a lot in a short time. I am emotional and always holding back to express emotion. Haiku has given me a form of expression. The best part is throughout my emotions and experiences I share through haiku I may be an inspiration to others and help others relate, so they feel they are not alone.
Every renga and haiku I chose is a reflection of some part of my life that made an impression or shows what I am passionate about. They are not all happy but they did make me who I am today. A growing, strong, independent single mom, student, employee, sister, friend and above all an amazing woman.
