This day she finds sand
to dig, not knowing the crow
will feed on soft eggs.
While in Delaware in June, the lake turtles faithfully came ashore to deposit eggs. They dug in the sand, expelled the eggs, covered the dozens of eggs and returned to the water. Often a crow watched, waited and consumed. I felt sorry.
A long time ago I thought I would become a chemist! I have been in the world of science throughout my years. I think writing and particularly haiku and its forms are like chemistry. They are a distillate of a larger mass and require some technique and work to arrive there. I am a chemist/poet.
