diamonds on dark blue silk
I chose the title for my collection, "diamonds on dark blue silk", because there are moments in our lives that we remember and cherish above others. It's these moments that stand out the most in our lives and are the diamonds that stand out against the dark blue silk that is the infinite number of experiences we have. These diamonds can be the simplest every day moments but sometimes the most significant and memorable things are the ones we experience every day. The haiku that are in this collection are some of the diamonds in my life and my feelings and reflections on them. Many of the haiku in this collection deal with relationships or transitioning into college and finding out who I really am and have become since high school. On a more personal not many of the relationship haiku are in the fall section of the collection. This is because my boyfriend and I began our relationship in the fall of my freshmen year of high school.
When I read Stef's haiku, I get a vivid picture in my mind with tons of memories swirling around it. Her haiku just paints a picture in your mind, and brings a smile to your face. Her fresh word choice paired with the placement of words brings about a great haiku. She puts a lot of time, effort, and heart into her haiku, and that shines through. Stef's haiku is very pleasing to read and I would recommend it to anyone! ~Katie
