This haiku is one of my earlier pieces. Soon after reading about Thornden Park's famous rose gardens, I learned that the park was inaugurating a Shakespeare-in-the-Park program. I love rose gardens and have always had a deep affection for Shakespeare. The idea of Thornden Park's rose gardens, coupled with the Renaissance man, sparked my inspiration for this haiku.

Haiku has always been of interest to me and I enjoy its challenging format. I've written poetry since high school, but about four years ago, I thought it would be fun to submit a few haiku in the annual New Times Syr-Haiku Contest. When one of my haiku placed third, I was hooked! Now I find myself always at work on a haiku, constantly jotting down ideas, particularly when I go walking. I find that nature and the outdoors, history and events going on around me ignite my imagination!

Drama in the round,
Roses, far and wide abound.
Shakespeare would be proud.
