I'm a twenty-something urbanite trying to make meaning in a raucous modern ecosystem.

My current little experiment: writing an original haiku every day for one year.

THE TOUGH LADY

Wherever they might be they always remember that the past was a lie, that memory has no return, that every spring gone by could never be recovered, and that the wildest and most tenacious love was an ephemeral truth in the end.

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Haiku for today, April 12, 2014

Great virtue and curse

This refusal to be chained

Live free at all cost

Haiku for today, April 11, 2014

Time to sweep out webs

Shake the rugs and start anew

We survived winter!

Take me to this place.

Take me to this place.

Haiku for today, April 10, 2014

Good some warmth can do

For the soul’s nooks and crannies

To fill aches with light

Haiku for today, April 9, 2014

Oceans of empty

Still searching and wading through

Nothing but nothing

Haiku for today, April 8, 2014

Spring in Chicago

Wet earth smells come first, then worms

Sun creaks through the chill

Haiku for today, April 7, 2014

Long road back homeward

Filled with emptiness and sighs

Remembering youth
