Sitting in a chair
Staring at a whole wide world
Of endless possibilities

Look over the emptiness,
A blank canvas patiently waiting
For the absent artist

A daydreamer’s haven
Becomes my very own prison
As I serve a life sentence

But there isn’t a cage
That can hold a bird forever
Soon it will break free

American Haiku

Walking the line between tradition and breaking tradition. Exploring big ideas with small words.
