Choe's Poem

I'm not very good at writing poems. Mostly because I feel that poems are less structure based than essays or research papers. Because of this, I decided to write a haiku since haiku's have specific guidelines and it's more straight forward. I think the hardest part of writing this was thinking of words that mean what I want to say and make sense. So, I spent most of my time counting out syllables with my fingers.

The Man on the Wire

An afternoon breeze
shakes the cable that extends
across, edge to edge

On top the towers, 
stood a man who has dreams for
the impossible

He glances across
between him and life he walks.
No hesitation

Little steps to walks
Walking turns into dancing
laying for a break

Time comes to leave
By a signal from nature
he walks off the line

He conquered the world
this act turned him into the
Man on the wire.
