After 25 years I decided to go back to school—no small feat for someone already working 2 jobs. When my advisor suggested a haiku class—I welcomed this first class openly as I have always enjoyed writing. Little did I know I was going to find pure joy in taking this class. Thus I have titled by book of haiku "Joy".
This course has opened my eyes and made me look at the world from a new perspective again—giving me a joy in the everyday things we tend to overlook in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. I hope these haiku bring you as much joy reading them as I had writing them.
