The ramblings of someone trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions
The moon is watching My being is inactive Stillness is present
The moon is watching
My being is inactive
Stillness is present
Snow falls on white pines The air, cold like the dead now Not a sound heard here
Snow falls on white pines
The air, cold like the dead now
Not a sound heard here
Now a robin sings Water ripples behind me Sun, a friendly face

Ah! Haiku! Very nice. Love Haiku, and the moon on the ocean Friday night was AMAZING. Thanks for posting such "lean" disciplined poetry. Great exercise for the brain and the spirit. How was class on Friday?
Thanks, Karen. I really enjoy writing Haiku, mostly because it is more difficult than it appears. Your description of it being "exercise for the brain and spirit" is right on the money; it definitely works on both.Class was really interesting; I have a feeling I'm going to be the person that destroys the bell curve. We'll see whether or not that's true, however. Right now I'm looking forward to it being a solid learning experience. The instructor (he's a DC - I'll bet he knows skeletal anatomy rather well) seems like he'll be good. More to follow.
I like this very much indeed = I did comment on your FB but you may have missed that - you should do more, a real talent for Haiku
Thank you, Susie. I really appreciate the feedback.As I was telling Karen, Haiku is my favorite type of poetry. It appeals to the part of my nature that craves order, and I think that's why I like writing it so much.I will definitely work on more. I promise.
