Peaches Haiku

Every summer, my family and I would travel back to Korea and buy the peaches in the wet market...the juiciest, ripest, and the biggest peach that would make your mouth drip saliva. In the sweltering hot summer, taking those peaches out from the freezer and putting them in your mouth gives a sensation that makes your mouth burst in sweetness. Peaches are a summer fruit that should not go unnoticed.

Winning Haiku for our July 2016 Haiku Contest - Favorite Summer Food

Interview with Suh Joon (Alex) Kim, the winner of our July 2016 Haiku Contest

  1. How long have you been writing poetry, and what got you started?
    I got serious about writing poetry about 2 years ago, but I was interested in poetry ever since I was in 3rd grade. I couldn't express my thoughts well back then, so my teacher introduced me to poetry. Ever since, it has been a medium to express my thoughts.
  2. How have the rapid changes in technology and communication affected how you engage with poetry?
    The rapid changes technology and communication allowed me to engage more openly with poetry. Since the invention of the internet and the creation of email, I could access lots of interesting poems that people posted on the internet, I could ask people about how they tried to improve their poetry, and most importantly, I could post my own poems for the general public to see. If the rapid changes of technology and communication didn't happen, I don't think that I would have the confidence to make my poems public.
  3. Share with us a fun or interesting fact about yourself.
    One interesting fact about myself would be that I love taking pictures, reading, and writing stories. Despite my interests in creative writing, another fact about myself would be that I'm absolutely horrible with grammar.
