Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

My friends, my attempts to visit your blogs recently are often blocked by word verification. If I don't seem to have visited lately, it's not for want of trying.

Blogspot's verification is not so nice, I also think. I myself switched it off, let's see what is happening...

Well well,,,

The word verfication is often not possible to read, especially for old eyes. It is frustrating and annoying. Sometimes,I have found that if the first try fails, I'm given another, and another, somewhat easier to read.


p. s. This is my third try for this post.

Well, join the club, Bill ! Those "Please proof you're not a robot" are becoming really annoying, aren't they ! (But didi you know it's the same thing on your blog ? I often have to try several times before I'm able to post a message. It's Blogger's fault).

Hi, Bill. I hope I'm not mistaken. You're the poet who won first place at the latest Carribean Kigo Kukai, right? If you are, congratulations!

By the way, I hope you join again the Haiku My Photo Challenge on my blog. Here's the link http://blossomrain.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-2nd-haiku-my-photo-challenge.html

My problem has been, not only that it's hard to read, but that when I have read it correctly, word verification often doesn't recognize it. Thanks for visiting and for not being robots.

And thanks, Chrissi, for your congratulations and for the invitation.

I have just disabled word verification. Comments will continue to require my approval.
