A collection of poems which occasionally tie in related haiku to deepen the experiencing of the poem. This may be the first time that a poet has attempted to introduce the concept of haiku to flavor the lead poem. Holding Clouds Responsible will open not only your eyes to a fuller poetic experience, but allow the reader to explore additional depths the haiku may offer.
