catch her bubble
on my wand
In Fountain Spit, I try to capture and vocalize the small moments that are often overlooked. Often, in the noise and the fuss of everyday life, it is easy to get caught up and glaze over the little serendipitous or interesting events that could act as happy jimmies on the metaphorical sundaes that are our lives. Hopefully, in reading my haiku, you will take away an extra little perspective that you hadn’t thought of before. If this is the case, let me know, and I will feel good and probably give you a high five and ramble for a while.

Overall, I enjoyed the simpleness of these poems. Some were quite thought-provoking and, in a small way, made the reader reminisce on little moments, bittersweet or sprightly, which I suppose was the point of this collection. *high fives. They were clever as well as intriguing, and covered a wide variety of life's trivialities. My favorite was: sad

because it involved a pun, which amuses me. The arrangement of the pieces seemed to add to each one. It created a tiny setting in the reader's mind before the focal point of the haiku rolled around. Others of them made me laugh, sigh or cringe.
