Poet's Notes about The Poem

Note: The inspiration first came to me for the writing of this poem a few days ago. The three words that popped into my mind were, "change the code". I have played with several different combinations of words to express being active rather than reaction in setting the tone for ones mental and emotional life rather than going along with outside forces or influences.

I decided to use the haiku (5-7-5) form as the medium to convey this message. I first published this poem on my blog today,16 July 2017.

    A little short, you should try to lengthen it so that readers may more deeply feel the emotions you are trying to convey (Report)Reply

    Yes, a good suggestion, Naomi. I like this form of poetry since it being so zen like and minimalistic, it leaves readers to insight their own meaning. Thanks for your comment.
