Photo Assisted Poem [PAP]: Haiku for Freeman

Maybe I don’t mean “symbolic meaning for the thing” — Maybe I mean something more like: Isn’t a haiku supposed to present the thing in such a way that thought stops at it?  It seems to me that “contain” raises too many questions about the nature of a reflection to let the mind rest on the image…

Freeman Ng of “Haiku Diem” fame broke his foot yesterdiem.  Sorry to hear it, Freeman. I hope you mend quickly and suffer nothing further as a result of this accident.

    since the night the path
    slipped out from underneath me
    the free-fall goes on

    Oh yes? Is this a statement of truth as well as a poem of truth? I’ve felt your quiet. I’m just now writing to you in response to your wonderful holiday present.
