Haiku is a type of poem that consists of three lines with a five-seven-five syllable count, ending with a profound turn of thought. Its short form is perfect for conveying the meaning of a message in a creative but concise manner. My commissioned haiku can be created for blogs, websites, presentations, gifts, and events.

For commissioned work: In addition to the customer receiving the text of their haiku via email, each commissioned poem is also typed onto a 7″ x 5″ piece of 65-lb. white card stock (acid-and lignen-free) using my antique Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. Furthermore, an ink drawing is added alongside the haiku to represent the meaning of the poem. Everything is then mailed inside a crisp black envelope that includes a description card and care instructions.
