For the Mind

Rick Trask

I feel that haiku are written for the mind. The method I use for writing haiku is to build a story around my thoughts and experiences.

at the park
friends surround me
memories of afar

memories of her
I toss in the pond
my reflection weeps

sore muscles
basketball practice

no walls
for the mind
