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

Haiku for today, April 21, 2014

Each year spring returns

Trees bloom and life continues

Until it doesn’t

Haiku for today, April 20, 2014

Pieces of poems

Hang all over me, for you

Unformed and raging

Haiku for today, April 19, 2014

An entire day passed

Never once I remembered

That I’m a human

Haiku for today, April 18, 2014

Yellow warm fingers

Pierce the cumulus blanket

Sun’s welcome patchwork

Haiku for today, April 17, 2014

Crisp greenish April

Buds burst from nearly bare trees

Days tinged with newness

Haiku for today, April 16, 2014

Whizzing across time

Hurling through space, not looking

No chance to notice

Haiku for today, April 15, 2014

Mysteries of youth

Half-shaded truth suspended

In memory’s haze

Haiku for today, April 14, 2014

The wild parts of me

Are the best parts of me -shh!

Don’t tell anyone

Haiku of the day, April 13, 2014

See myself in the eyes

Of a million grandmothers

And grant forgiveness

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
