Lab Haiku

Fall 2018


Beautiful fall day

Far away from Kavanaugh

Welcome Haswell Lab


A dry pollen grain

A drop of water added

Wild type grows slow?


Control responds, too

Oops, onto a new channel

E. Coli, and plants


Piezo is big

Arabidopsis has failed

However, moss works


For weak null effects

You do a lot of talking

But who is it to?


Death can be programmed

MSL10 can cause death

Pathway still unknown


To pop and survive

Ion, membrane, wall or else

Who is the driver?


I will advise you

And help plan experiments

First I need coffee


Grants meetings teaching

Fill days like swelling pollen

Find time for plant love
