I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon my haiku journey so far. Today is the halfway mark of my journey. Like the lotus flower in the picture I have not bloomed yet. 🙂 When I look back at my early haiku I can see that I was ignorant of the history of haiku and had no subtlety in my work. Over the past few months I have devoured as many books on haiku as I could, joined various organizations and submitted my work for publication (which resulted in a few publications). This weekend I will be attending “Haiku Fest” here in Chicago to continue my journey.
Thank you to all who read my work, thank you to my children for letting me have time to work and to my darling wife for her support.
