Introduction My pen name is Strider. For me, poetry is a manifestation of mindful living. Haiku, as an immediate form of poetry, is particularly suitable for fostering a deep appreciation of life in all manifestations. I will be exploring and commenting on some of the haiku and other poetry of Japanese and English-speaking haiku poets.
