december to remember


Dear blog:

I think of you often, but when I sit down to write, the words seem trite. Would it be better if I composed in rhyme all the time? Doubtful. But I've decided we should get reacquainted for the month of December, so expect a slew of mediocre haikus, pictures of trees, and if I get really ambitious, there might even be a few semi-colons. To start things off, here's a haiku I composed while talking about haikus with an old friend:

dearest gingko tree
your yellow leaves cheer me but
damn your smelly fruit

the overthinker

Somehow I knew if I preserved the link to your blog it would someday reactivate. Looking forward to some haiku! :)

I'm not into stinky ginkgo fruit myself, but I always enjoyed seeing the Chinese women collecting it in New York...
