on the blank page
prepared by the snow
never ending inside
Illustration: my self portrait in the Keith Tyson work "29 Dec 2001: Somewhere near the edge of the visible universe... Turn Back Now at Whitney Museum.
In some strange way this is a dialogue with a haiku I wrote 8 years ago.
drawn in snow
To my surprise this haiku became the Winner of the 2008 San Francisco International Haiku Competition.
