Boston Spring Haiku

Last November I challenged myself and my blog readers to compose one haiku a day as an exercise in mindfulness. While I am not sure I am ready to recommit to a daily haiku quite yet, I do find myself using the beautifully simple construct of a haiku to view the world through a more mindful lens. Today as I drove along the Charles River on my way to Boston this haiku took shape.
