How Many Stars Will I Kill Tonight?


How many stars will I kill tonight?

Thousands if I let my dark voices in with no fight.

Quel my fears with a lasso I can hold.

Yank them to the side, and focus on the things I can control.

Cherish everything that brings me joy.

Sure tomorrow can be great,

but right now is what I must appreciate.

All I Need Is One Bright Star


Among billions,

all I need is one bright star

to join my starlight. – Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku #68, July 29, 2017 –
