For the poet in all of us - Pandemic Haiku

Ames (Iowa) woman's haiku inspires nationwide writing group

A haiku written by an Ames resident has united writers county and countrywide in documenting their pandemic experiences and now is part of a book of their work, “Pandemic Haiku: Volume One.”

Robin Schinnow, a licensed therapist, thought of the haiku, a traditional Japanese 17-syllable poem, at the end of March during the beginning of the statewide period of social distancing and felt an urge to write more and share them with others.
