William Padgett
Poet
For almost 50 years I have been a visual artist, an illustrator and a designer. I am always trying to reduce things to their essence, looking for the simple answers. During the past twenty years, I have also been writing poetry. What I like about writing haiku are their constraints and the quest for the simple essence. This haiku gives just enough information for the reader to capture the moment, place, and feeling; they fill in the rest. Now there is a relationship between the poem and reader.

Crisp autumn sunshine
Shadows stretch while dry leaves dance
Warm scarf pulled tightly
