Thanks, Vaughn and polona. For a city boy, the sensation of walking barefoot anywhere but around the house or at the beach is pretty intense.

Barefoot is the shoe wear of the season here. With as many soles and heels constantly stepping on Mother Earth's back, pushing back's a gentle response. Excellent piece!!

love it too ... had to smile that the titles sometimes add a little more - as in this one ....

and i didnt know where else to tell you this (have a look and see if comments can be placed on your site as a whole without attaching to a poem) ...

i wanted to say ... i love your blogsite ... its perfectly haiku/senryu with a wonderful bunch of links to some people i know (and love) and others i am yet to discover ...

you have a great sense of humour too ! ...

i am in awe of when you wrote your first haiku! . wow .... i hope this means when i get there i too will write great poetry ! ::: hugs ::: >>> Gina
