a young girl I was introduced to haiku in the 5-7-5 format.
It wasn't until now that I see the true art of haiku poetry.
During a very emotional time in my life, haiku has helped
me define my inner being.
is the perfect way to maintain life in the past, present and
future. I think that my best haiku have come from past experiences.
The emotion and content seem to come hand-in-hand when dealing
light of the loss of my stepfather, my latter haiku have been
filled with loss, sadness and hurt. Haiku has been very helpful
to me through this difficult time.
