yu needs a real vacation

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 4:53 pm

Poor Yu Chang.  He teaches at Union College, which

is on a trimester system and has only a week between

exams (they just ended) and the new Spring semester. 

Yu can’t start his break until he finishes marking quite

a lot of engineering exams.

It’s a good thing he wrote these haiku and senryu a few

years ago, when he had a little spare time.  We can

perhaps all unwind and bliss out in his honor:




someone’s hat

left on a park bench

quiet afternoon





fund drive

the ivy covered building

has a new name










new camera

another set of photos

of the same rock









old tennis ball

someone yells

from a patch of violets








traffic jam

a plastic dog

keeps on nodding






honest potluck

I was planning to write some amazing punditry and commentary

on legal and social issues of great importance this afternoon.

However, I just got a better offer.  May you have companionship

(and food) as good as mine this evening (and avoid the Sobriety

Checkpoints, too).
