Monostich Imaginings by Debbie Strange

Debbie Strange is a widely published Canadian short form poet, haiga artist, and photographer whose creative passions bring her closer to the world and to herself.

Artist's Statement:

"As an avid practitioner of the haikai arts, I am always striving to find new ways of expressing myself concisely and creatively. The brevity of the monostich/monoku form challenges me to distill my imaginings down to their essence. Working in this minimalistic genre fosters a sense of fluidity in my writing, which in turn, inspires me to be open to experimentation. The fanciful illustrations accompanying these poems were composed on my iPad."
