I have been a writer for most of my life. Writing and being in nature are both vital to my soul life. I live in the country, surrounded by forests and waterfalls, and when I am alone here, there is a sense of deep peace, profound stillness, and a connectedness to all that is. There is never loneliness. Itís different in the city. I was in Armory Square late one night, and out of the darkness came the sound of a saxophone, playing its lone music to a deserted street, piercing the silenceóthe kind of silence that bespoke loneliness. I wanted to capture, in my haiku, the loneliness that is felt when we expect people to be present, as opposed to the peaceful solitude we feel in nature.

Lonely concrete world
Sad note from a saxophone
Night in the city
