I had used up half my life before finding haiku or haiku found me. So much to learn, so little time. Such fun! I was born in London and raised in the British West Indies and on a small ranch my American mother had homesteaded in Arizona.
My husband and I have retired to the coast of Maine. The country and water are beautiful and we spend as much time as we can outside hiking, sailing, kayaking, etc. It is a wonderful life and a wonderful time for haiku.
Kirsty has had haiku published in 6 countries, many journals, and some anthologies. Others have been successful in competitions. She feels very fortunate that her haiku have won the RH Blyth Award in 2002 and International Division of the Mainichi Contest in 2003.
