Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

I just wrote this and posted it at Andrew's blog as a response to one of his. You can read his original (and other good stuff) by clicking on "andrew—past tense" to the left.

Hi Bill,

thank you so much for the comment and letting me know when you started off with Haiku..

that was a news to me...and i just missed to get back in the morning when i read it...

i would be a pleasure to have our friends visit me..and for me to go and see them...

my only need is some extra hours a day --i am into so many things..real and virtual...
but would by all means take time out to visit all at least once in a week...but i will hav to visit my old friends daily...as the committment we built in this 3 months or so have been very valuable to me...in fact life giving i should say..

i say all this so that my new firends should know that they share a place no any less in my heart and mind...

i love the group that i see at Wanda's. I hope they are your friends too...the moe you have the better...to me -- my past firends -- all i know is that all were away in a moment of deep crisis...may be they will come back...

and we build a world, even if virtual, where love is just the basis...

thats my dream....if you read a poem " what i do these days" at my Certain Kind of Woman" blog..some time in Aug/Sept..

wishes, Bill..you meant something in my life..i can't define that..and i don't define even otherwise excpt for my blood relations and family...
