how delightful–
my damp, sweaty

in the beach breeze
my travels forgotten…
evening cool

  • Congrats to Prof. B.  But, stay humble: page hits ain’t “visitors”.

breathing

   and linking:

      the weblogger



hat tip small flip . . .

 

The Esq end of haikuEsq is finding it very difficult to e-post without o-pining.   Having sworn off lengthy commentary and crusading, but pining to keep and create links in the weblog world, your Editor has mediated a solution between his many conflicting persona: One-Breath Punditry & Pointers.

 

Haiku are one-breath poems.  I will not demean haiku by trying to writing short comments and links in haiku form.  But, I will attempt to make my points and pointers in 17 syllables or less — quite a challenge for a guy f/k/a prolixEsq.

all night the same

   quiet thoughts
