Haiku #14: wishes

In collaboration with the Haiku Society of America, the Chicago Botanic Garden put out a call for submissions in mid-2019 for its Words in Bloom: A Year of Haiku at Chicago Botanic Garden exhibition. Out of around 1,400 submissions, 32 haiku were selected for placement throughout 2020 in the English Walled Garden, Japanese Garden, Native Plant Garden, and Prairie areas. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, sign placements were delayed and staggered, but the entire exhibition will be on display for at least the remainder of 2021. I was honored to have my poem "wishes" selected for the Native Plant Garden, and am so excited to finally be able to share it with you now:
