I've always enjoyed the simplicity, playful nature, and structure (the guidelines help my otherwise paralyzed creative side) of haiku poetry. On very rare occasions, I've found myself coming up with a haiku to contribute something fun to a conversation. So why not contribute a little whimsy to this conversation about my adventures in our country by writing haiku along the way! 

Haiku: A major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons on the subject of nature or one of the seasons.

Sit. Listen. Music
Blanketing us all in joy.
Listen. Telluride

Gray, weathering storms.
Calm now, look to the future
Golden, blue and green


May 10, 2017: Judgement

Spring: equal sun and rain
Progress can be subjective
Day by day I build

Yeah, generally
my work trips are often fun
But 6 years? I'm through

Hollow, white, metal
temporarily, you are.
