Haiku: A Leaf in the Wind
My journey into haiku territory began in 1998, after reading Richard Wright s book titled HAIKU: This Other World, published forty years after his death. Since that time I have been on a haiku high. That initial taste of haiku produced fi ve haiku books: Like a Flower Blooming (1999), This Little Island Mine (2000), No Words Has the Rose (2003), Haiku: This Other Joy (2005), If the Gobi Tree Could Talk: "A Calabash of Poems" (2007) and now, Haiku: "A Leaf in the Wind." While most of the poems in this publication were written on St. Croix, others were inspired on visits to New York, Australia, Gibraltar, Greece and Turkey."
