Late Nights & Early Mornings
In this book I am expressing some thoughts of college life. Most, if not all, college students have gone through late nights followed by early mornings. The best part is feeling accomplished and being relaxed the next afternoon and enjoying some time before starting all over again the next night. I discuss the cycle of hard work and dedication we all have accomplished while dealing with the hardships of life and to remember what was once an easier time. I hope you enjoy reading these haiku as much as I did to create them.
Early on I dedicated my passion to science and research. I loved the idea of creating new things and mixing chemicals to cause explosions or fire. Just the everyday thought of a kid in a general science class. As I grew older, I continued my passion and will soon attend graduate school for a PhD in Analytical Chemistry. To fill the time I had many hobbies, but only one gave me a passion to do more than just chemistry. Poetry is an art much like getting accurate mixtures of chemicals to safely complete experiments. Poetry works a different type of thinking in the brain and explores a creativity most scientists do not have time to use. As I push farther in my career, I plan to continue writing poetry and hopefully publish a collection of many different types of poetry. Haiku has been engraved in my mind after finishing a course at Millikin University with Dr. Randy Brooks. Therefore, I present you my first possible installment to my lifelong journey. I hope it shows the passion I have for this art and the remembrance of a lifetime.
