I wanted to comment on your Gandhi hero (he was a superhero)but I like the haiku more;-)Writing haiku's is good and nice to do.
Both the pic & the haiku perfectly captured this process - very well done!
That tells it perfectly.rel
I love that you write things out long-hand... for some reason, I do my best work typing...Lovely haiku.
Lovely snyopsis of your craft. I write on the computer, but scribble notes to myself wherever I am in a little moleskin notebook. For many years, I wrote everything out longhand.
I always count on my fingers, over and over again. :)Love the picture... the mad poet!!
Delightful to see your haiku notes. Looks an awful lot like my dream haiku notebook. :-)Although I don't stick to the 5/7/5 convention in my ku, I'm always counting, too. To keep from exceeding those counts. I'm always amazed at how much editing I need to do for such a tiny poem. LOL! I wonder if the classic Japanese haijin did the same?
marion- welcome. how fun to get sidetracked by haiku ; )To all those who commented on process - I guess I hadn't thought about long-hand vs. typing. It's an old habit that I like to keep old fashion. It's a joy to read your comments as it takes things a little deeper into one's craft. Thank you.
That looks very familar! It works too, doesn't it???
thanx for coments, I go to me information about the IF. One big hug!!!!PS: forgive me for mi englesh, i'm to student :)
Really like your words, getzapped. I've heard and read some haikus before, but I've never really know what's the difference compared to a 'poem'...or is haiku a japanese-styled poem?.....Do share :)
sandy- scratching the process... yes!james. Cool! I know your incredible illustrations will blow folks away at IF. Good luck!constance- I play with haiku, but don't adhere to the traditional form. Here is a good link for more info, if you're interested-http://www.toyomasu.com/haiku/#whatishaikuEnjoy!
LOL I loved the slash marks and the second line was dead on.
Love the photo and seeing your process. The scratch marks cracked me up. I do the same.
really fun to "see" someone else's way of bringing the words out.
That looks quite like my notebook too. I work equally between notebook and screen these days.
Lovely notebook and haiku. I think we can all agree that One Deep Breath lets us all do so--literally!:)
I'm honored by all of you. It's been a joy sharing our craft. Thank you. Peace and joy.
Great picture and the haiku fits!
Fun to see your process!!
