Norman Wm. Muise
I have resided in Guelph Ontario for most of my life. Haiku became my passion while attending an online poetry workshop. I love the simplicity of the form and the depth that can be achieved in three short lines. I continue to evolve in my writing and that keeps it fresh. on for a number of years. Iam hoping to keep doing so.
