I carry my poem on a tatty piece of card in amongst the clutter and pens and paper clips at the bottom of my bag … but I know it by heart as well, so I guess I carry it in two places. Clever, hey? Not really so clever when you hear what it is, though, because it’s a haiku – so very short and easy. Important all the same. I love it!

Mizuta Masahide – 17th century Japanese poet.

It looks like we have similar stories… books are my lighthouse in the darkness of times like these.
