As a student of Japanese aesthetics and culture I'm fascinated with the prominence Haiku has in Japanese society.
In studying the 72 micro-seasons of Japan, it is profound to see each micro-season first expressed with haiku that illustrates the season and the lineage of each poet delved into, as if they were royalty - revered and honored.
The subtlety of haiku, the reverence for nature, and the appreciation of each and every day - the aesthetics of the Japanese, inspires me to write haiku and practice the art of my ancestors.
Adding the artistic element and story behind each haiku are necessary for me, as an expression of the meaning behind the work.
I will occasionally share these works here.
Most humble regards,
