17 Syllables

30 Poems in November! is a literary fundraiser for Center for New Americans. Center for New Americans welcomes and serves immigrants in Western Massachusetts with free English classes and a range of support services. For more information, please visit: http://www.cnam.org This year, we aim to raise $50,000. Writers do their part by writing one poem each day in November. Friends and family do their part by donating to support this effort. Powerful new poems and financial contributions translate to community support for immigrants

Great stretch! Lovely poems! Thanks
"17 syllables", a haiku in 3 lines, helps me remember there are really wonderful things to say, in really short (non-twitter based) forms and that these words might, just might, inspire a smile, a laugh, an act of love, a momentary pause, a reflection of all that is possible. May all beings know peace... and safety... and respect.
