I choose this specific collection of Haiku because they best describe my feelings and my life. I am a mother and I wanted to reflect the times spent with my children as well as a few personal feelings and memories that have stuck with me growing up. My understandings and approaches to Haiku come from my personal experiences. I write about the thoughts and feelings I am having about a specific issue or time of year.

I especially enjoyed Lindsey’s Haiku in reference to her grandmother tapping away at the keys because I too have had experiences where I have learned from my grandmother. Another Haiku I found to be great was the one about the Christmas stockings hung in a row year after year. This shows the significance of the stockings and again allows everyone to relate to the Christmas season.
