A collection of Al's haikus and poems, exploring our inner-lives and lives together.
The details beneath, Finger-tapping on life’s beat. Haikus everywhere.
Connecting to the texture of our inner-lives seems important. To connect with not just the contents, but the emotion, the detail, the nuance. Rather than simply letting the world and our experience hit us like a ball against a wall, taking the time to reflect, digest and breathe it in. Living in contexts and environments that constantly draw us away from ourselves and out of our experience, it seems like a worthwhile endeavour to develop a way to re-connect with the bumpy, itchy, silky smooth, slimy and velvet texture of our lives.
Al practices writing haiku as a way to reflect upon, process and integrate experiences and thoughts that bring depth or perspective.
