RESOLUTION: Learn more about the history of Haiku. Maybe buy some books about it and do some reading. Generally, find ways and means by which this form can not be simply refined, but redefined. Maybe do it in another language. Learn from other writers. EXPAND MY HORIZONS.

This is a decent five-some to start my year with.


Revolution

It starts, just one thought
what could be changed: slightest spark,
set light to the world.

Carve alteration,
perception shifts: focus
transforms everything.

Possibility,
previously dreams: merely
ephemeral goals.

Sharp, single bright light
shone within self: enlighten
darkest mental depths.

Revolution, rise;
storm obstacles: flag planted
existence defined.
