This is the time of technology and speed; of instant gratification and social media platforms. A challenging time for some—a difficult time for others. The fast pace demand is only a simple nod to these times as recognition.
What does poetry demand?
Some of us will take a direction away from the viral activity, and onto a blue highway—the lifeline of a sacred road map. This entry where local people and shops shoulder the community; where nature is nestled a few blocks in any direction. A place and time where the senses are blooming with engagement. This encounter, this way, this perception—these are poetic forms of profound beauty. It is my intention that the objective of this chapbook is to provide a wealth of words and messages. This objective is to create a place where the fast pace, and instant reciprocation, will give you pleasure reading these haiku.
Freedom is the range of change.
