About the Author

The author admits that he did not really enjoy poetry all that much when he was at school except for E E Cummings who he thought was great. He had a mental image of poets flouncing around in big frilly shirts and swooning over the beauty of buttercups and the like. This really did not draw him to this area of literature. However, having recently read R.H. Blyth’s books on Haiku he felt the unexpected urge to give Haiku a go. The author enjoys the brevity of Haiku which can nonetheless portray vivid images, emotions and thoughts. Haiku explores the essential in the trivial and sees significance in the seemingly insignificant. Furthermore after listening to John Lithgow’s audio book on poetry the author even felt moved to give other forms of poetry a try. P.S. The author is currently searching online for flouncy shirts and quite likes snowdrops. The author lives in a universe, on a planet, in a country, in a city, in a house, in a body, in a universe . . . .
