I enjoy discovering new ways of looking at universal concepts and old ways of looking at the new and unfamiliar. I like writing about what makes us human, and exploring the complexity of the human psyche.This collection presents (slightly more than) five hundred haiku that Ive written over the ages of 9 to 25, as I tried (and continue to try) to maintain some level of sense and sanity as I go about my daily existence.Thank you for joining me on this personal journey of reflection and introspection, via my first collection of haiku titled:Instantaneous (In)sanity."-- Jess C Scott----------Excerpt (3 Haiku):Functions in AnalysisGod made us a brainTo sustain the insane painOf testing its use.DanceFigures, dancing inThe Shadows, quick yet silentUnder the Moonlight.Ever been kissed?Of course--Describe it--Why?--I want to know if youveEver seen Heaven.* * *Author Bio:Jess is an author/artist/non-conformist who’s dedicated to writing original stories that are both meaningful and entertaining.Most of Jess’s work is fueled by an intense drive to inspire others to favor social/spiritual values over shallow values.
