Paul Goat Allen
Poet
When I think of haiku, I think of the traditional form of Japanese poetry, and I think of nature and spirituality. Or not necessarily spirituality, but some type of transcendent experience. So I thought it would be interesting to mix nature with religion, or a religious symbol, such as a church with stained glass windows.

At first I thought of the Roman Catholic cathedral on Columbus Circle. But the visual image wasn’t specific to that church. And the more I thought about it, I thought it could be an interesting idea for an art student—in particular, the image of silent worshippers, and the snowflakes falling past a stained glass window. I just thought that was ripe for visual interpretation.

Stained glass snowflakes fall
past the cathedral windows
gathering of souls
