I write haiku when I'm feelin' blue and when love and pain make me want. Join us on a journey through the pain of betrayal, divorce and after... We love the traditional Japanese haiku format of 17 syllables on 3 lines: 5-7-5. It is very symmetrical, terse and disciplined. However, these are not your great grandfather's haiku. This is Modern American Haiku. We do keep the fundamental format, but that 's all. For one thing, we give them titles, which we believe helps the reader focus on the punch in each haiku. Second, there is word play. Third, there is the extra dimension of the images in which the haiku are embedded or by which they are framed. We believe the reader will be amazed at how well the illustrations deepen the haiku. Ted and Patricia
