Love and Fiction
Samuel R. Miller
I don't like poetry. I read and write a fair amount of it but it was never something that I wanted to do with any sort of regularity. Haiku was my least favorite kind of poetry because I was under the impression that it was just a bunch of boring nature poems with a rigid meter. Nothing irritates me more than nature poetry because it all sounds the same.
That being said, I was pleased to find out that I did not have to stick to those rules and that I could in fact write about whatever I wanted to. I wrote about a number of things over the past five months, from food to love to fictional characters. I can't pin down what my haiku style is, because I really don't know yet. I'm just getting my feet wet so all I can say is that my haiku are wild and varied and may not always make sense to everyone. That's okay. Enjoy the ride anyways.
