In 2016, the author, Steve Titterud, wrote a haiku and sent it to a friend. The friend answered in haiku. The author responded back in haiku. The friend again wrote a responsive haiku. This 'call and response' dialogue in haiku has continued on nearly a daily basis to the present time of late 2020. The author found a voice he did not know he had through this extended dialogue, restricted exclusively to poetic form over several years. This collection is in part excerpts from that dialogue. He feels his poetry expresses compassion, small but significant truths, and a touch of humor.
