Favorite Quote:
Don't be a victim; be a titan.

Just a single spark
Rids darkness from the inside;
Surface set aflame.

Sturdy but broken,
Clawing up to the Heavens;
Branches persevere.

One moment in time,
You know all you desire;
Death to the night sky.

Agitates your mind -
Dust is gone from your dry eyes;
Don’t hide from yourself.

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece, trying to relate nature to humanity. I think I've only written one haiku before, so I decided to give it a shot.

"Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."
--Albert Einstein
