Ownership is Empowerment

Ownership gives strength

The problems of someone else
Will never get solved

A haiku which considers the importance of owning our problems, and empowering ourselves to find solutions.

Hologram*

Quite a clever haiku. The fact that the crafter is 8 fills me with joy.

My name is Mason and I am 8 years old. I go to Beach Elementary on Lummi Island and this is my first published poem.

I came up with the poem, Hologram, by flipping through a dictionary and randomly picking a page. I decided the word I chose would be the title of my poem. I then thought of the characteristics of a hologram and used those to write my haiku.

As one stares upwards

Admiring ornate art

Expressions in stone


 

Another image found on Bing (it’s from this website. Really interesting work).

I’ve long admire such stonework. The craftsmanship is exquisite, but I’m even more impressed by the mind the conceived it.
