Poet
I have enjoyed writing haiku over a period of several years. I became interested in it when my daughter studied haiku in grade school; I was inspired by one of her teachers, also a haiku writer.

I chose to write about the Dinosaur Bar-B-Q because it is a really popular place in Syracuse -- a landmark, almost -- and because it has a lot of color associated with it, the flames and the blues and all, and they have really good food. I think their ribs are the best I've ever had.

What I like about haiku is the short format, which makes it easy, but challenging at the same time. I like the challenge of trying to express a beautiful thought or depicting a beautiful image, usually about nature, in a very short space.
