Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

I've posted this at Juliet's* and tikkis's** blogs over the last few days

*one day before the snow
**one day after, but with more expected early next week

A visitor to this blog once asked me to explain the appeal of haiku. I told him that haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

Thanks, my friends.

Living in NYC with my first snow day in years this haiku is very fitting. Thanks. http://visualizedpoetry.wordpress.com/

Me, too, Kristin.

Thanks, John.

Ambrose, I can relate. My wife is a retired NY schoolteacher.

Ah, Gillena, you do keep busy.

Here is one left from my wintry-train-serie :-)

in a trembling train
sipping my coffee --
the paper cup's warmth

Nicely caught, tikkis.

Make it strong enough, Anthony, and I'm ready to take on anything. At least, I think so.

Thank you, Juliet.

Great moment, Adelaide.

Thanks, all.
