    Brother Poet NittyGrit,

    Now, you've made me smile. And so polite, too. Thanks for stopping by and leaving words. (smile)

    The flow and depth of your Haiku is to be commended. It's not as easy as you make it look.

    I'm inspired and impressed at the same time... and looking forward to more

    She sits​
    with no friends
    and calls forth two lonely tears
    that whipser​
    pretty please​

    Kiwanda.. This piece, as a whole, is really beautiful and accomplished.. You should publish it as an epic poem.. 1 post per page.

    I agree with skuder....you really should submit these one at a time. They are timely jewels. I keep missing them.
    Im also wondering, are you female, or Paul Kiwanda?
