A year is complete
All the poetry is done
I fondly say “Ciao”


With this, my year of living poetically came to a close on April 15, 2017. I wrote at least one haiku every day for exactly a year (with the exception of two sick days). I captured everything from our family vacation (the source of the snapshot on this post) to the death of one of our pets. In between, there was that pesky American election, the 100 foot tree that fell in our yard, the crash that totaled one of our cars, and a lot of desperate days where it didn’t seem like I would think of anything to write (but did).
