The title of this haiku collection is Summer’s Wings. The first reason being the focus of the collection is summertime. The summer is the main time of the year where I can not only deeply investigate my feelings but, express them as well. It is also the time where I can spend the most time with family and friends and live life at a much slower pace, filled with more easy-going fun activities. During the school year, everything seems fast-paced. I can barely sit down and process my thoughts; this is something I am allowed during summer. Additionally, randomly, butterflies are out and about in summer, and they are creatures that I find fascinating and had to find a way to incorporate.
The second reason is the freeing element of wings. They allow flight, to wander, explore, and try new things. All of which I want to do this summer. Junior year had to be one of the hardest in my academic career. So, I will allow my mind to roam without constraints, and take advantage of the freeness of summertime.
