Inviting Connection Through the Gap in Haiku
the connection-building capacity of the gap created by the juxtaposition in haiku. Seventeen experienced haiku poets (including myself as both researcher and poet) responded to survey
questions about the intuitive process of writing and reading haiku. The responses illuminate how the simplicity of haiku can paradoxically hold profound meaning through the connections with
self, other, and environment. Haiku may have potential in curriculum beyond language arts into environmental studies.
