Over the course of this spring semester, haiku has found a special place in my heart. Not only does it force me to examine my thoughts and feelings, but helps me put my emotions into words. I named this collection "Spring Cleaning" because these haiku tell the story of my spring semester at Millikin University, 2016. These haiku are arranged in chronological order, from the beginning of writing haiku to present. I like to think of writing haiku as a way to clean your head and express your emotions, making the title appropriate. These haiku are a piece of me and my life. I hope you cherish them as much as I do.
