  1. It seems everybody tries to write haiku today, yet so few understand the form and do it well. You, friend, are a master at it. Bravo.

      Thanks. You placed your finger right on what I feel strongly about. Yes, I believe the haiku poetry, in its form and rhythm, holds a vast possibility.

      • Yes, yes. A great haiku is so compressed, distilled, refractory; it’s like a prism, the images, if well chosen, throw off a rainbow of colors or impressions in the light of the mind of a careful reader and result in (I believe) a profound meditative experience. I think Twitter and its limited form of communication has convinced many uninformed would-be poets that haiku is an easy way to sound pithy and sententious. A ridiculous notion, of course.

  2. I don’t write poetry but I love…love to read it. You are very creative. Hugs, Barbara

  3. I am just amazed by your blogg, I could stay whole day and read…

    Dear Sir, you have enriched my life, shown me the troubled path is only a way. Now I dance like a butterfly, for your words are flowers of thought. Everything I do now is with a thought of mindfulness, I have read much, studied much, but to have experienced your expressions I have let go. Now I am a happy child (with scars). I thankyou with all my heart… (you know, that squishy thing that goes bump in the night)…

      Such a kind comment is much more than I can possibly deserve. I simply let go and jot down words that come to mind when I experience something in nature. I’d be more than glad such a feeling can be shared with you. Thank you again for your purchase of multiple copies of the book. I noticed it the publisher’s statement. You help me a great deal.

        One person writing
        a person seeking
        small world after all
        Nature the catalyst…
        Though we sit on different soil, the stories in the end are universal, all it takes is time to recognise all is one… Because I buy a book does not mean I deserve to own it, I must understand the words, or at my best, to connect with profound beauty of expression. Please note my literary form is of no consequence, I personally break rules, defy traditions and should probably shut up…

        I perfectly understand. You and I are on the same boat.
