Know who she is? No?

Neither does she.

Upon waking up in a park, surrounded by dead people all adorned in rubber gloves, notes from her pre-amnesia self give her the option of either taking the wealth she has stockpiled and disappearing from the UK to some Caribbean island to live an idyllic life or she can choose to tackle the mystery of who obliterated her prior consciousness and seemingly wants her dead.

basho artIt's Spring, and Cleveland Park Library's annual haiku contest has arrived! Follow your inspiration, and submit your own haiku. 

A form of poetry that originated in Japan, haiku captures a mood or scene from everyday life -- often of nature. It can be serious or humorous. The haiku style traditionally consists of 17 Japanese on in three phrases or, more commonly in English: of three lines of five syllables, then seven, then five. The last line may be a surprise or bring the poem's elements together.
