 ~Charles Simic

              My goal for Poetry MonthA haiku diary that may include other forms related to haiku, like haibun, haiga. monoku or renga. My first poem speaks of why I am handwriting the poems.

  1. Talking books with a teen? She's so lucky to have your recommendations. Love every line of this haiku!

    1. Thank you! It was a fun day. Other young ones came in, too! This particular young woman was an avid reader, said it was time to 'stock up'!

  2. Is there anything better than talking books with an avid reader?

    1. I have that joy quite a lot at the store, Cheriee. There's very little better! Thanks!

  3. What a wonderful, productive conversation. I did not expect the ending!

    1. You may not know that it's a local used bookstore, Glenda, all run by volunteers, too. Thus, the books are a very good price! Thank you.


Thanks for visiting!
