I started writing haiku poems, seeking clarity of thought before seeing a therapist. Some poems are memories, or issues I struggle with in my life, or lessons I need to learn, or moments I want to hold dear. Topics range from coping with type 2 diabetes, weight loss, aging, and much more.
Non readers can read and understand the poems because they are simple and very clear. Even re-reading is pleasurable in the same way it's enjoyable to play a piano piece learned many years ago. The issues are timeless, for people of all ages. Hopefully, a reader will be reminded of a similar experience in his or her life.
These are topics of the human condition as seen from a lifetime of experiences of joy, sadness, lessons to be learned, and lessons to share. It incorporates mindfulness and meditation, and encourages peace of mind, personal growth, and honesty. The book represents courage to look at reality without pressure for perfections, and with hope for being your best and brightest each day.
Look around. Everything you see was once someone's idea. Imagination is the key. Use your imagination today.
