I enjoy sitting at Columbus Circle, especially in the summer. It’s a great place to observe life. One day I looked at Columbus and thought he sailed a long way to find this land only to be now found by pigeons. I don’t believe he “discovered” this land, but he was an explorer, and now pigeons were “exploring” him. There he was, standing tall and proud, being semi-abused by a city bird, which is quite common.

It really is a fairly simple observation on life and nature, and that’s the way I think most haiku and senryu should be. Keep it very simple and let the readers find their own depth.
