The Haiku Series was developed due to a love of this minimalistic Japanese poetry. Based on a triplet verse of 5-7-5 syllables, the form is simple yet full of meaning. Capturing a moment in time, Haiku often reflects a kigo, or seasonal reference. This series of small work reflects the heart of haiku: ""The primary purpose of reading and writing Haiku is sharing moments of our lives that have moved us... this is one of the great purposes of all art". William J. Higginson (Haiku Handbook, 1985)
