At the beginning of my Global Haiku course I must say I was a little skeptical of what I was walking into. Not knowing anything about haiku, I heard my first haiku and laughed like "what!" I did not have a clue what the person was talking about are why it was worded the way it was. I read my next haiku and immediately understood and most of all I liked it.
I would consider myself an emotional haiku writer who goes off life events as they have happen and have happened in the close past. I enjoy haiku that tell a small story in 3 lines or less. This is what amazes me about haiku is that you do not have to write a lot to say a lot. I have giving you my examples of haiku and with my haiku you can definitely tell your own story.
