Episode 41: 9/11 Memorial

Host and poet Alan Pizzarelli wrote this haiku in the mid-1990's. Since 9/11 in 2001, this haiku has resonated with an added meaning for many readers. Let us not forget, the memory of our peaceful world, before that horrible day and make for a more peaceful future.

The video footage is one of the twin towers reflecting pools and falls at the 9/11 Memorial.Each of the falls sits within the footprint where the Twin Towers once stood.

a billowing cloud
resumes its shadow
across the twin towers
