In a Crowded Room:
A collection of Haiku
Elizabeth M. Ciaccio
My collection of haiku is a reflection of my life and the lives of those I have encountered in my life thus far. There is a range of topics, from childhood memories to late night parties. When writing haiku I try to put myself in each situation I’m writing about in order to make the images coming out of the haiku more vivid. It’s important for me to write in a way that everyone who reads my work can relate to it. I hope you get as much out of my collection of haiku as I have… enjoy!
In Global Haiku Traditions I learned that haiku was so much more than those 5-7-5 poems we learned about in grade school. They are an art all their own, and to master that art means you are able to make your readers genuinely feel something and see something inside your words.
