New post is up at my page, BTW.

Also, have you looked into twitter.com?

Posts are limited to 140 characters. Perfect for most of your haiku / tanka, etc. I see some other haiku poets up there. You can link back to this blog page, also. Might be another way to meet more folks interested in haiku, etc.

Hi Bill,
I mean to post a comment on this laughing haiku, but I put in on the one-liner instead. A wonderful image and comparison.
