How easy it is to take for granted and overlook the everyday things that compose this life: from fresh blueberries for breakfast to the flannel pillowcases that make the winter nights of sleep more comfortable. In Sticky Notes Haiku, these seemingly ordinary and nearly invisible objects are moved to center stage where they can be acknowledged, seen and appreciated for their true significance. Along with that which we value most–friends, family, truth–these matter, too, and rightly deserve our attention. Especially in light of the pandemic, take a moment, look around, and cherish the little wonders that enrich and sustain your life.

between morning tea

& morning meditation

waking up


open window —

the post-its

fluttering too


the living room clock

stops telling time

so do I


from one

sticky note to another

this life


no life

is ever fully complete

a blooming and dying rose
