Andrew Callister

I live in a cottage on the outskirts of a small city in southern Australia with wife Kristy and a rambunctious dog, Dharma. Working toward a PhD in tree breeding and water relations physiology, consumes most of my time. I also enjoy growing bonsai, bushwalking, trips to the beach, snorkelling, and the company of family and friends.

I started writing haikai about 18 months ago, and now the notepad accompanies me most places - much to Kristy's chagrine! Haiku excites me because it empowers simple language to illuminate the humorous, poignant and allegorical moments in everyday life. The challenge to perceive and describe these mometns is ongoing.
