“The words you can’t find, you borrow. We read to know we’re not alone. We read because we are alone. We read and we are not alone. We are not alone. My life is in these books, he wants to tell her. Read these and know my heart. We are not quite novels. The analogy he is looking for is almost there. We are not quite short stories. At this point, his life is seeming closest to that. In the end, we are collected works.” ― Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

A tree stands alone, 

Do you see the Wilting Tree?

It's flowers are kind.

The author's comments:

This was a Haiku I wrote for part of a book project. It is inspired from the book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
