Just dropping in. I'll be back full time right after Easter.

the flowers of spring
all the haiku I could write
if I knew their names

Bill, just found your place through Matt Morden's site. I will look you up in Red Moon.

Now that I found your space, looking forward to your return and to stopping by more often.

A classic, Bill.

Oh, and you pulled it off in 5-7-5! Nice.

It's good to see you're still writing, during you time away from here.

I'm impressed by the prosody, the words' flow, the beautiful idea. Your poem is really a model for me.

spring morning -
all the trills I could sing
if I was a bird...

Thank you for sharing,

I'm a slow learner, so, I'll have material to write about the rest of my life. Glad you stopped by.

Thanks, all. Just got back from North Carolina (For Dana-Maria, Polona, Angelika, it's in the south), where it snowed last night!

Welcome back. I love this, because I've had a similar feeling about not knowing the names of natural things.

Yes, kami, we city kids are truly disadvantaged in this respect. But we do have street smarts, I keep telling myself.
