A Blooming Courtroom

Where do they come from?

Some are secret, some are not.

Bowers of flowers.


The many floral arrangements sent to Judge Ito’s courtroom cause great speculation. I either wasn’t curious enough to see who they were from to ask or check for tags on them, or chose not to know so I could truthfully tell inquiring reporters and producers I didn’t know, or just plain didn’t have time to be bothered, I don’t know. But the fact is, I didn’t know.

What I did know nearly a year later was who sent a huge bouquet to me at my court office and how shocked I was. I’m still not over it. I wrote a haiku about it on that day, September 18, 1995. Watch this space for it on September 18, 2015.

  1. So funny. I guess you’re big on anniversaries.

  2. Since I wrote a haiku just about every day a court session was held on the Simpson case, what better occasion to share them than on the date of creation, twenty years later.
