Vulnerability in Haiku

I’ve added a wonderful quotation by Canadian poet Wendy Morton to the essay Seeing Into the Heart: Vulnerability in Haiku, quoted from her book, Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast:
 
“We open ourselves to people, it seems to me, by reading them a poem. They, in turn, open themselves to us. . . . I think poetry can take the armour that we wear . . . and shatter it. Poetry can connect us with each other as humans as no other art form I know.”
