taste of hibiscus tea
on your lips

Angèle Lux was born in 1961 in Montreal, Canada. She writes poetry and haiku which have been published in several literary magazines and anthologies and on different web sites. She has been working as a teacher for the past eight years in a private high school in Gatineau, Quebec, where she teaches French and History. Angèle first became interested in haiku in the late 1990s when she realised how haiku is a fundamental way of looking at the world and an aesthetic experience making one aware of the uniqueness of every moment.
