As a little introduction, this is the first of a new weekly post I’ll be sharing every weekend. I plan to include a variety of content including my own creative writing, others’ writing that I find interesting or insightful, news that is relevant to myself or others, and other items of note.

My Work:

Haiku, upon hiking at Greenleaf State Park:

Little flow long dry

Made alive again by us

Crossing to explore

Haiku, upon seeing a group of wilting flowers on the first day of autumn:

These fading flowers

Made more beautiful by death

Mem’ry unblemished

 

Others’ Work:

An Ancient Greek Proverb:

A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.
