Bridging cultural and philosophical ideas, this poetry allows a moment to study and wonder about the essence of ourselves in the natural environment. It notices and reminds us of the intense subtle beauty taken in through the senses. Then, departing from traditional haiku, the poetry expands to imagine the human emotion of the soul. Emotion is so rooted and centered that it begs the question of why it is there on an intuitive plane. The poetry finally illuminates that joy and truth, living as the basic matter of the universe, so it can be felt by all and questioned by all willing.
