Lost in Thoughts
When I write haiku, the most important thing to me is capturing the moments that the give a glimpse into a particular moment in time and take the reader to another place that is relatable. These captured moments give you the idea of what the writer was sensing, but at the same time, giving the reader an opportunity to be aware of their own senses and feelings.
Haiku is great for letting reader's think for themselves. The images "illustrated" by the haiku are purely based on the reader's perception. The haiku may set the scene and provide a little detail, but it is the reader that brings a new life to the haiku. I choose to call this collection of haiku "Lost in Thoughts." This is a line from one of my personal haiku:
lost in thoughts
just what to say
Each haiku can have a different interpretation depending on the audience. A certain haiku can make a reader think of a certain thing, place, memory, or moment in time, while that same haiku can have a completely different meaning to someone else. I often write about the thoughts and events of my own life. These can range from the happiest of times, of just the random thought of a particular loved one.
The following is a collection of some of my personal favorites from my haiku collection.
