Why the Haibun?

Rooted in the concrete, the observable, the observed.

Paying attention so as to arrest one’s attention.

The immediate transposed into the lasting.

Transportable. Moveable. Economical. Engaged.

Transformational–at root and as goal.

Informational, yes, but beyond, under, in between the headlines.

A pocket poem. 

Poem for the pocket.

Pocket it. 


A hole in a pocket

and the moment of discovering such.

Walt Whitman cocks

his head–what stories he has

in that beard!
