Tiger Woods. Babe Ruth. Billie Jean King. Arian Foster. Missy Franklin. What do these five athletes have in common? A unique haiku has been written about them.
Kelly Kroll's Haikudos to Athletes: Poetry in Motion demonstrates the definition of haiku, as she takes her reader on an enjoyable mind journey through various sports and their outstanding athletes. Kelly is inspired by an athlete's name or nickname that represents nature, animals, or interesting objects. This enables her to create imagery that captures the athlete's sport, personality, or passion, and in turn, expresses those special traits in each haiku. In this poetry book, Kelly encourages her reader to review the custom haikus several times to absorb and understand the deeper levels of meaning. The marvelous matching sketches enhance and complement the haikus' clever and key messages.
