Haiku #31417


haiku #31417

the kindness of strangers
the world relies on it-
we should not retreat

© Rebecca Sanchez 2017

I coded this artwork so it’s different than my usual work.

I wrote this for Gillena’s CKK Anniversary kukai 2017 (retreat), Poet’s United (the kindness of strangers), and shared with Imaginary Garden Of Real Toads (the Tuesday platform.)

  1. In our present political climate, retreating is such a temptation. But how can a poet retreat? I firmly believe that we poets are the ones on whom the world relies to keep things together during difficult times. Write on!

  2. Some strangers are so very kind. I hope I am like them.
    Your #1417? March 14 was pi Day, pi is 3.1416. Is today the next higher, 3.1417? Or was it a coincidence?

    1. Oh my, that tickles me, Jim! No, it wasn’t on purpose. Because haiku isn’t supposed to have titles I use the day I write them to title them. That way, it never repeats and no title. I was aware of Pi Day but not the number sequence, you must be a brainiac. That is so cool! Thanks for telling me.
