A Haiku For No One

Cultivating Maturity
31 January, 2007

Having family
Helped to materialize
The sound man in me.

**Note** This is my first attempt at a haiku style that I've created in which the last three syllables of the first and last line rhyme. I call it a "Trine Rhyme Haiku." You have to read it out loud to get the feeling of the artificial meter created by the triple rhyme. Thoughts?
