Darrell Byrd
California, USA

Darrell Byrd is a retired Agricultural Biologist living in the Imperial Valley, a diverse agricultural area in the northern Sonoran Desert. He became interested in Japanese culture while he was serving in the Pacific Fleet and stationed in Japan. He recently rediscovered haiku and contributes regularly to the on-line haiku lists and Photo-Haiku sites as well as to many journals. Darrell takes advantage of the desert and mountain terrain of his environs, and of his years at sea for inspiration in creating his haiku and haiga.
