on Haiku

Haiku poems are so beautiful. They were Japanese forms of poetry that made use of simplicity, finding their muses from delicate pleasures of nature, love and little things. I think they just about speak what the heart says. The way it ignores details in the very same way it notices smaller details, the way that a little intricacy is seen in the a soft light tone.

It is hard to explain. They remind me of the Japanese style of art. Clean lines. Simple white spaces. They are never afraid to speak too little. They just know how much to say.
