Lize Bard is a pseudonym for my ‘non-day-job’ writing.
In my profession, I often wander/wonder through time, across the globe and in my mind.
A mind that is in the moment is a rare and beautiful thing. I seldom use electronic media in the company of others (travelling or otherwise), because it often distracts from the quality of the moment.
Rather, when I have time (or need the creative outlet), I sit down to sketch thoughts and memories of encounters or observations in a few words – haiku. Sometimes, when I feel strong enough, I also indulge in immediate social comment.
The poems are not chronologically ordered nor does ‘you’ refer to any single person. They simply represent a moment or thought in space-time, sometimes spent in solitude and sometimes shared with another person in a classroom, with a cherished friend or family member, a stranger on an airport or on the corner of a street.
Haiku become like old friends, thus some are re-posted and pre-scheduled months ahead as nostalgic indulgence – sometimes paired with a new image or new title.
Here I share some of the poems accumulated over the years: https://wandererhaiku.wordpress.com/
