haiku the world

The story of a month told through the form of haiku. 
Some years ago, a challenge of writing everyday was made. 
Below are the results from one such participant, 
writing haikus, about nothing and 
everything in general for one month. 
Some parts have been redacted for privacy (locations, names, etc.).
