Mortality

Darwin—first to glimpse
with eyes and mind wide open
man’s true origin

I don’t fear you, World
a spherical arena
you have no intent

if I do not wake
don’t think less of me, think more
for I will be gone

there is grandeur, yet
a deep-seated misery
in this view of life

These haikus were inspired by the stark beauty, but also the harsh reality of nature.
