About the Creator

Rick Henry

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.

    Brilliant! This is exactly why having a 100 word limit on most of the poetry is a mistake.

    Love this. It has a lot of depth to it. I love the idea of ripples - to me they represent change, but I like your perspective of something drifting away with them. Nice job!

  • Novel Allen13 days ago

    Don't drift too far. We need you. Lovely Haiku for u.

  • Your poems always hit me hard! It's so sad that we have to age. Especially when we're young at heart. Brilliant Haiku!
