About the Book

I have chosen the seventeen-syllable haiku and senryu formulation for its discipline in order to express my thoughts on nature, existence, and human relationships. The mundane is never mundane. All life is a vibrant existence for the one who has a keen awareness of one’s surroundings whether animate or inanimate. There are worlds to observe if we have eyes to see and ears to hear and later reflect in solitude.
