Celebrate New Years
Look forward, not to the past
A new day does dawn

Simplicity Lane Truism Haikus are snippets of the world around us that we should think about when developing characters, and the physical and mental atmospheres.
Prior to stopping at a restaurant on October 4, 2005, during a long drive to Baltimore, I had received a phone call. During the phone call, the caller said that someone had just told him about a woman whom I had not seen for 28 years. For the next 100+ miles to the restaurant, my mind was fixed on a specific 1975 photograph of the woman; a photograph that resided in an old album sequestered to a storage closet shelf. …thus, as I sat in the restaurant on October 4, 2005, a poem was born.
