“For better or worse we carry with us all the experiences in our life. They are though much less of a burden if they are in the form of a poem. Haiku are short poems that are small reminders of the larger issues in life. Look at them as bookmarks for the larger event stored in your memory.” From the foreword by Michael Rehling, editor and poet

Extra Candles. Published by Red Moon Press

Collection of 24 haiku poems (sold out)

img_4442

“Extra Candles is a work of quiet introspection by the poet. That said, when you read this volume you may find yourself in many of these poems. Haiku combines a striking minimalism that originates from the poet and interacts with the feelings, memories and experiences of the reader. In this sense the reader is the real arbiter of the ‘meaning’ of the poem. When you absorb the work of Liz Crocket she will take you to a place where you can experience the poem fully in your own world.” — from the foreword by Mike Rehling

“The style in this collection is so matter of fact that you feel as if you are there, a member of the family, neighbor or friend. There is something here that tells you that whatever happens to us it can’t disturb our inner peace, or destroy our essence, unless we let it.” from the foreword by Mike Rehling
