Sunday Haiku
  A series of rich and meditative haikus designed to get you through your year positively.



I started writing poetry in my mid twenties as a response to a particularly difficult time I went through at that period, and have been writing ever since. Most of my poems stem from personal experience or observation, although in some I do use a persona to create dramatic monologue. When writing, it’s occasionally good to be someone else for a while.
