Authors's Preface

The title of this collection was chosen to signify the many blessings in my life. Life is full of many uncertainties and the art of Haiku has allowed me to embrace everything that is thrown my way -- good or bad. The art of Haiku allows you to create your own adventure by exploring your inner most imagination.
Four Leaf Clover is a collection of my very best Haiku which was written from July 27th, 2011 – August 21st, 2011.

Reader's Preface

Before reading Adam Buxton's collection in Four Leaf Clover, I never really had an understanding of haiku's purpose. However, Buxton does a great job of making you reach back into your childhood memories and observing something in a different light. Buxton has a created a collection of simplistic haiku that everyone can relate too. Sit back and enjoy . . . and remember to slow down and observe the many things around you.

morning dew
wet footprints
across the kitchen floor

snow falling
church bells ringing
Midnight Mass

Autumn sunset
picking the perfect pumpkin


Sunday afternoon
$9 beers at the ballpark
I watch it all do down the urinal

are we there yet
are we there yet…


Decatur Celebration
childhood friends reunite
at a best friends funeral

ice cold suds
serious conversation
one more is never enough
