I feel as though haiku is a gift. Another way to express myself has been given to me through the art of haiku. It is just so simple to immerse yourself in a brief moment to jot down three expressive, or sensory, lines of poetry.
My collection of haiku mainly focus on the human condition. Intimate and sometimes unfortunate experiences have been selected for my haiku, with the clear intention to connect with my readers.
I call my collection "Sudden Shower" because that is how writing haiku has been for me. Once I began to write them, it seemed as though my haiku had been waiting for me to discover them. It felt as though they were just falling down upon the pages. Each haiku has been a significant drop in my new "sudden shower" of creativity.
