Etna, CA, Sunday, November 11, 2007, Wit (http://www.wit.us) honors Japan and the creators of the ancient art of Haiku poetry with the release of his E-book Secrets to the Universe Volume I (ISBN: 0-9760650-1-0).
" I love Haiku. I was captivated from the first time I read them." said Wit, singer-songwriter, author. "I am extremely happy I can pay homage to an art that I hold in such high regard ".
Even though Wit does not follow the strict rule of Haiku in all of his poetry, Wit has captured the essence adding his own style. Creating something new.
" I get so much enjoyment to see/hear an artist build onto an art form adding their own style." said Wit, singer-songwriter, author. " For example, I heard a song from heavy metal band from Japan. Even though I did not understand the language, I understood the driving force behind the music. It had a cultural spice that was so refreshing to listen to".
In 1999 Wit started E-mailing his Haiku poetry to family, friends and co-workers. From these meager beginnings Secrets to the Universe was born. People quickly started passing on Wit’s poetry and the list of readers grew. Wit later added thought-provoking (sometimes controversial) observations to his E-mailings.
Working in the electronic industry for over a decade, Wit found solace from the high paced and stressful industry with the observation and writing of nature and the human condition. Many of Wit’s readers could identify with the high stresses in their own lives and took refuge in the reading and contemplating of the little moment that Wit shared.
Wit is the first to state that his writing style of Haiku does not always follow the strict rules set down centuries ago. Taking these artistic liberties has enlightened, entertained , and challenged his readers. Wit believes that this is what has led to the popularity of his writings.
