If you have finished reading The Red Kimono, or if you’re in the process of reading, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the following topic:
I used haiku to summarize important events at the start of some of the chapters in The Red Kimono. Many of the haiku included symbolism such as porcelain mask:
A porcelain mask
Though inside, a heart beats strong
Even the oak breaks.
What did “leaves” symbolize?
Leaves swirling around
Fall to the ground and lie in
What other symbols or metaphors do you recall from the book? Why did I use haiku only in Sachi’s chapters? Should I have used more? Less?
Please feel free to write your comments, critique, feedback, etc. Also, if you’re willing, I’d love for you to leave a review on Amazon by clicking on the following link! 🙂
