A Haiku a day
Inspiring a calm mind
Awakens the soul
I used to write poetry in high school, maybe earlier. Once I joined the Navy I didn't do much writing at all for a couple years. When I was stationed in Italy I decided to go back to school, it didn't take long to decide I wanted to major in English. I do love writing!
The first English class I took was heavy in poetry and I will freely admit that sonnets and haiku's made me nervous. After writing a few, I now find sonnets less intimidating and very much enjoy writing haiku's! I've even won a poetry contest with one.
