Haiku Two

I have been having a lot of fun writing Haikus recently. Getting the right words is hard for me as a writer, nevertheless, it is what draws me forward. Hope you enjoy. (Also as a pre-P.S. I guess, there will be some upcoming updates to my website soon with some new features. I am kinda pumped for it, but it’ll take some time.)

Terraforming/ Big Bend

This upcoming week I will be in Big Bend National Park in Texas. This place is pretty incredible — it is like you’ve landed on an alien planet with barren lands marked by wild rock formations. Red, dusty, beautiful. I’ve been here before and that trip inspired by poetry book, Terraforming: A Story of the Heart and Separation (which you can find at the bottom of groundedinone.com.) In honor of returning to this park, I’ve decided to post the poem that comes from my poetry narrative/book that is titled “Big Bend.” This piece fits into the narrative well, I think, as a way of describing the new planet the character in the book finds themself in. I hope you enjoy! Feel free to check out the full book in you are so inclined.
