Haiku #23


On a slow news day*
when there's little to tell
how fortunate the Haiku's short!


*some stuff, like the earthquake for example,
can only be written about when the spirit is upon you.

Nice work Dave. Get thru a full year of Haiku and then publish them all in a book!

Kass said...

Agreed (in reference to your Haiku).
I appreciate your comments on my blog, especially the slightly negative ones (like when you said you didn't like my death mask tissue dispenser). Now I know I can trust you and that you are not capable of empty praise.
