My Mission Statement

I write to serve, to unite, to educate. I write to share literature and flesh out ideas that may be of interest to others. I write to document an emotion, experience, or a blip in time. My mission is to write in such a way that the reader is reminded that we can find humor in all situations. It's one of the great blessings of life.

Haiku the Sunday New York Times

Polish President
Tragic death with all his friends
Country in mourning

Interest rates rising
Refinance now if you can
Only going up

Retiring justice
John Paul Stevens leaves a slot
Can the parties choose?

James Cameron in
Volta Grande Do Xingu (don't you just love how that's seven syllables?)
Greed versus nature

The topic of his
Visit to the Brazilians
He feels called to act.

Yay Phil Mickleson
Shining Master's champion
What a great story.
**okay, that wasn't in the NYT yesterday because it hadn't happened yet, but it was definitely worth a mention...

NFL questions?
Women lead the great debate.
Fight for workman's comp.

Other Georgia course
Augusta Municipal
Great traditions,too.

Have a great day, everyone. Haiku your own news. It's National Poetry Month!
