  1. Wow--you made me wince...in a good way, though. Still, I hope you're not talking about any actual incident involving your actual fingers?

  2. That sounds painful!
    My blog friend mary is having a fundraiser for kids with cancer. Even dollar donations are helpful. And, there is a great raffle. Can you go check it out?

  3. Hi Kouji!

    How are you?

    I am inviting you to my BoL's Brain Pain. Don't worry, it's not as hard as what the title sounds (grin).

    I hope to see you there!

    xoxo,

  6. kouji, I loved this poem. I miss ice skating, (can't do it because of my strokes), but I used to love to ice skate since I was a child. Thank you for helping me remember the good times!
    Your friend, Lori

  9. These are all very wonderful word images. I thought Haiku, however, was a strict 17 syllable poem with 5,7,5 syllable in three lines...Lord knows I could be wrong... just wondering...As I said before these present wonderful images

  13. I am pretty light on poetry form, as a freeform poet, but isn't Haiku supposed to be 5 syllabal, 7 syllabal, 5 syllabal. Your Haiku's dont' stay consistant, not even 2,4,2 or 3,4,3, they don't have any construct to be formal Haiku's.

    Is there a new type of Haiku construct like freeform Haiku?

    Good in here!

  25. I just stumbled across this place on Technorati, I like what you're doing here. This one is maybe my favorite so far, it's really vivid and slicing. Which is to say, the images work well with each other, but they're not too obvious, either.

    Good stuff.
