I have written a number of poems in haiku form. (See “Haiku Meditations on the Church Year
,” “More Haiku
,” “Columbia Homecoming
,” and “Meta-haiku
.”) I like the challenge of making a point in only 17 syllables. Yesterday, I was thinking about today’s retirement of Pope Benedict XVI and wrote this somewhat ironic haiku for the occasion.
And another takes his job,
Just like you or me.
Note: This poem is also available on my Web site here
