Why I Write Haiku Poetry
WHY I WRITE HAIKU
I have been writing a long while, lyrics, poems and short stories and along came haiku.
I fell in love with the conciseness of haiku, and the dealing of the awareness of the moment. This is the reason for first haiku book: ‘Gordito Haiku: Book One’.
My Haiku poetry is diverse and wide ranging while dealing with the importance of time. My second haiku book is simply a continuation of my first book.
I write almost daily a lyric, a poem or a story start and most everyday a haiku or two. I have just finished my second haiku book: ‘Gordito Haiku: Book Two’.
I plan for ‘Gordito Haiku: Book Three’ to be printed and published before this Thanksgiving with more books to come after it.
I write of the awareness of details in life, of observation, and of thoughts and dreams. I do not think I will be done writing my haiku books until there are at least Ten ‘Gordito Haiku’ books completed.
I am an American haiku poet, but I write for every man and woman on this earth.
I write haiku because I like to write poetry this way.
