Poetry Prompt #8

It's National Poetry Month, so what better time to write some poetry? Here's today's prompt from poet Curtis L. Crisler.

For inspiration: Tyehimba Jess’s “Blind Boone’s Apparitions

            Prompt: Write a sequence of haikus like Jess, focusing on the persona of one person. It should look like a haiku crown, or heroic haiku (similar to a heroic sonnet), like what Jess is doing. It can be about someone famous, or some unsung person who should have gotten more recognition for what they contributed to society.
