#wonderbreak NPM Gratitude Poems






winter's bare branches
painted in oil and water
on concrete canvas

I don't know how my son does it, but somehow he finds beauty in unexpected places. I'm so glad he shares his findings so the rest of us can enjoy them too. 

In writing this haiku, I went back and forth on using the word "mirrored" or "painted" in line 2.  For now, I chose to go with "painted."  Then in line 3, I played with "paved" and settled on "concrete" for the alliteration.  I'm still now sure how this poem might change before I call it "finished."
