Chapter 1: Crickets and Storm Clouds
(138 poems written between March 2010 and September 2010)
The six months of haiku in this chapter chronicle my life and my feelings as I dealt with some painful experiences. During this time I grew emotionally, I learned a lot about the world, and I became close to new friends. By the end of this trying time, I realized important truths about myself, about love, and about loneliness.
