Shadows – Lexi.2 – Post-Apocalyptic Haiku

As Lexi struggles in the shadow years following the apocalypse she keeps a Haiku Journal. Lexi is the heroine of my work-in-progress, The Awakening.


Author: Jo-Ann Carson

About Jo-Ann Carson Where magic happens … Reports of Jo-Ann Carson’s death on a Gulf Island are greatly exaggerated or, at the very least, premature. The eclectic crew of ghosts that haunt her head spill onto the page in two series: The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries. A Viking with existential issues, a broken hearted Highlander, a Casanova man-witch and a Pirate with a secret are just a few of the males her strong heroines encounter in tales of fantasy, adventure and romance. A firm believer in the magic of our everyday lives, Jo-Ann loves watching sunrises, walking beaches near her home in the Pacific Northwest and reading by the fire.

    1. Thanks Judy,
      The haiku form fascinates me and I’ll be talking about that in tomorrow’s post.
      I’m enjoying writing them, so it seemed natural to imagine what my heroine would write in Haiku about the world after the apocalypse. Her haikus start chapters in the book that are in her POV (i.e., point of view). But I may change that. They could start all chapters. We’ll see.
      So to answer your question, and it’s a good one, the poems are coming out of Lesi’s character and her circumstances. They are more a result than a plan. If that makes any sense.
      The haiku doesn’t come first, her story does.
      Thanks for stopping by and appreciating my haiku.
      Best Wishes
