name is Jeanne Luckenbill, and I am a PACE student in the Nursing
cohort at Millikin University. Global Haiku Tradition is an
elective for me, and I barely had an idea of waht haiku was.
I must say that I have enjoyed studying haiku, and have found
it to be a good creative outlet. Reading and writing haiku has
been a memorable experience, and I have enjoyed attempting to
write haiku from my memories and life experiences. I will honestly
enjoy reading and writing haiku for a long time to come, and
hope I improve on the simplicity as mine are often too wordy,
long and give too much away, not allowing the reader to interpret
and use the haiku for themselves.
haiku come from memories or recalled events, at the moment of
realization of my feelings. Though few, I have composed a chapbook
of what I consider to be my best haiku, written over the past
five weeks. I have enjoyed writing and sharing them. I hope
you enjoy at least a few.
