Language and Silence collects her haiku and organises them in chronological order of composition as her life found its expression within the concision and suggestion that can be achieved in this verse form.
That her poetry-writing life was so short does not lessen her achievement in creating ripples in the lives of others. Anyone who comes to know and appreciate the unique aesthetics of haiku will know that a haiku is never finished, merely that the poet has moved on. The reader gets to enter it where the poet exited.

About the Author
Over the remaining two years of her life she wrapped her past and present in even greater cloistered mystery while she tried to come to terms with her future. Fascinated by language as much as she was by the interior silence of contemplation, she gravitated to the combination of both that she could find in writing haiku. In a similar paradoxical manner she hid herself from the world while she reached out to it through the anonymity of human interaction via the social networking complexities of the internet. In cyber-companionship with Ted van Zutphen she worked out her identity as girl/woman, nun/social butterfly, contemplative/wordsmith as together they wrote and studied haiku via digital communications.
Her work has appeared in a number of online and print journals, anthologies and books.
