Have you ever thought of writing your New Years resolutions, wishes, dreams, plans, goals — as a poem? I’m going to try to get mine into rhyme. Wouldn’t that be fun. To live life in rhyme.
Before I die I want to sing
Before I die I want to walk
Before I die I want to blink
Before I die I want to wing

If you click through to read Robert Haas’ “After the Gentle Poet Kobayashi Issa” you will encounter this haiku.
