Back in my radio days, I loved the challenge of writing thirty second spots. The approach demanded discipline. And cadence. There was no room to dawdle as words and time were precious commodities.

As a member of Poets.org and a devotee of The Poetry Foundation, I urge you to learn more about Haiku – then grab a pen and express your own inner poet.
