NYC Haiku #1

An unlikely mix

connected by human search

to know one's essence.

NYC Haiku #2

Everyone quickened

their pace, like a collective

turning of the page.

NYC Haiku #3

We will gravitate

to places where who we are

is permissible.

NYC Haiku #4

As passersby we

exchanged the satisfied look

of perfect timing.
