Just look at all the kids who know dream of being scienticts because they know here and now isnt all there is? Who didnt jump off that bridge because they know there is a new tomorrow? Who want to explore or become astronughts, sailors, pilots and other good things because you told them there are other tings to see?

Didn't we meet there at you awesome book review?? Haha Soo long ago! Anyway, back to the haiku......it was great! I loved it. I loved how it sparked like thinking inside of me and I guess thats what it is supposed to do: make you think! Another great one.... Keep rockin Mckay replied... May 14, 2013 at 1:22 pm : Glad it reminded you of Zevin's novel. It was so long ago. My how times passes so swiftly. Actually, this haiku was inspired by Lois Lowry's novel The Giver. When Jonas wants to escape to Elsewhere. If you haven't read the novel, you should. Really good. Thanks for your feedback. Always means the world to me. I apreciate it so much. And will continue to do so as long as I'm on Teenink. Laugh-it-Out replied... May 14, 2013 at 4:15 pm : Your welcome!!! And yes, I have read The Giver, a creepy novel if I must say so myself. But beautifully written. I guess you could call it somewhat of a spiritual story, but thats about where I end because I am not spiritual in any way and I don't know much. Anyway.......... I get this reference now. Mckay replied... May 15, 2013 at 7:04 pm : Oh good. Glad you got it. Thanks.
