Inspired by Tish H. Warren in an opinion piece in the NY Times, I write a haiku.

She writes:

“Like any other life-sustaining resource,” Marilyn Chandler McEntyre writes in her book “Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies,” “language can be depleted, polluted, contaminated, eroded and filled with artificial stimulants.” She argues that language needs to be rescued and restored, and points us to the practice of reading and writing poetry as one way of doing so. Poems, she says, “train and exercise the imagination” to “wage peace” because “the love of beauty is deeply related to the love of peace.”

Morning

Rising with the sun

Ascent an umbrella held

Rays reveal net’s dreams  

Labyrinth above Rodeo Beach in August – so dry yet space to fill in the blanks
