Creative Moments--By Thomas Canull--United States

if you look inward
you will begin to see more
of what's around you

life's illusion ..
the moment of creation
the ending begins

ripples on the pond
echoes of a moment past
... darting dragonfly

spring wind in the trees
blossoms drift to earth once more
full circle of life

Thomas Canull, in his early seventies, is a man of modest means who since his retirement has become a 'Haikuist  of note' with several of his poems being published in the Japanese on line media Asahi Shimbun. He posts a 'thought for the week' and 'haiku for the week' for one of the local Starbucks stores. He is also Co-founder of Hope 4 U bracelet Ministries.
