In times of distress, it is natural to seek inspiration to reclaim a positive mental state. While the current economic woes are real, it is optimism that fuels the determination to overcome any problem including this recession. The haikus below are dedicated to affected workers and companies as we take measure of this shared experience in order to end it.

After the quake
The weathervane
Pointing to earth

– Micheal Dylan Welch

The earth quakes
Just enough
To remind us

– Steve Sanfield

When the spade turns
The earth in our garden
How different it is

– Ion Codrescu
