    Fortyfive years old,
    The regrets knock on her door,
    But she won't answer.

    Thank You Fellow Poets

    Alyce, Rich and Lister,

    I am in my haiku season. Writing this way, is a challenge. Though haiku be the smallest poem in the world (17 syallables or less), it is also the deepest. This is where my soul loves to dwell...in the deep waters of wisdom, knowledge and insight.

    Joyce,

    I want to thank you for bringing Haiku to the board. It is through this form of poetry that we can hone our skills, and impart/ receive powerful messages. Very potent stuff in these poetic capsules.

    Thank you again, my sista....

    a

    Thank You Alyce

    :rolling: Haiku is wonderful, but I must warn you that it is addicting for certain types of people. You could find yourself rolling in haiku before it's all said and done...I know.

    You will know you are addicted when they start popping up in yo head at the grocery store, at the mall and especially at church. Carry a tablet around with you or else you will be sorry. Haikus are like a moment in time. They must be captured or they will be gone forever.
