Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

On the left of this page, you'll find a number of links, including a long list of links to other blogs. If you haven't visited these blogs, I urge you to do so. You'll find a lot of good stuff and get to know a lot of good people.
Most blogs, like this one, are essentially sites that allow the blogger to share his/her work with others. But I'd like to call your attention to one that's different. "Hot Cross Haiku," an Australian site, welcomes and posts contributions from around the world. I've posted a couple there myself.
For more information, click on hotcrosshaiku, and think about joining the list of contributors. Ian is one of the good people I was talking about.

autumn chill
sparrows at the feet

the day after Thanksgiving . . .
these other shoppers
Full disclosure: At 5 a. m., the day after Thanksgiving, I was sensibly in bed. But I know some people who weren't.

someone forgot to take in
the skeleton
A happy holiday to all who celebrate it--and, to those who don't, happiness anyway!

All Saints
Today, November 1, is All Saints' Day.
I'll be taking a break until mid-November. See you then.
