Selected Haiku of Marsha Malone Peel
For Dad, I will always miss you
This collection of haiku are all based upon memories that are important to me. My approach to haiku is to try to capture the emotion each memory brings with it. I admire the ability haiku have to portray an emotion and a picture at the same time with so few words. Learning about haiku has given me a new way to express myself in a less is more manner.
Marsha Malone Peel
Marsha’s work is a mix of both memories and facts of life; she possesses the distinct ability to paint a scene around the reader which brings her words to life. Granny’s pearls and Year after year are both personal favorites of mine, after the first line I was struck with an instant visual of things my own Grandma held dear and not being able to escape the hands of time. That is what haiku is all about, making the reader feel something and pulling at their emotions. I hope all who read this collection have as much fun as I did, thank you Marsha for sharing your work and memories with us.
