Western poetry, to me, can be fabricated but haiku needs to stem from an experience. My haiku are dated, thus the poems become very much like a diary.

This poem was written in early summer at Columbus Circle while I was sitting after a walk. I was struck by the difference between the cathedral’s high lit window and the moving shadows made by car headlights. The image conveyed to me the stability of the window versus the motion of the shadows, as well as high versus low and light versus dark. For me, it was a unique moment in time and another addition to my “diary."

above long shadows
brushing Columbus Circle
a church window shines
