On Haiku + Haiku #1

As an alternative means of capturing my thoughts and reflections, I’ve been writing Haiku about my teaching practice. This is the first post in the series.

I have loved to write for a long time. But now, for the first time in my life, I’m beginning to really appreciate poetry. Specifically, Haiku.

Crisp and elegant, it’s simplicity is a major draw for me. It captures what’s left of a moment after you strip away all of the noise that accompanies it. I’m hoping to plunge myself into this art form in the coming months. Other than some scribbles in a notebook, here’s my humble first attempt.
