Drop by Drop
by Rui Chan
Moments of inspiration are like drops of poetry around us. Sometimes, they fall quickly and heavily, like a shower, keeping us awake at night; sometimes, their slow and regular pitter-patter lull us to sleep. In every form, inspiration is similar to water: it nourishes the writer and carries the reader to a new world.
Haikus, which are like poetic photos to Rui Chan, are the perfect form to crystalize these moments of fleeting inspiration.
