If you stopped by the daily haiku weblogs of Matt Morden
and Paul David Mena on Sunday, you would have seen
two poems that moved me:
my mother struggles to remember
the names of my children
paul david mena (Dec. 4, 2005)
in my parents house
the smell of my grandparent’s house
matt morden (Dec. 4, 2005)
Matt Morden is accumulating a very good list of links to daily haiku
weblogs and other haiku and hokku-related sites. I’ve put a link to
the Morden Haiku site in the Sidebar for your convenience.
At Matt’s place today, you can find a larger, color version of this photo
and accompanying haiku, The effect is breathtaking.

On a perhaps less sublime note, if you went over to
Blawg Review #35 today, you learned that December 5th has been
designated The Day of the Ninja. Of course, pseudo-ninjas are even
more annoying than pseudo-haiku.
While at BR #35 — hosted by Colin Samuels of the Inferno-themed
Infamy or Praise weblog — you will find links to some of the best
law-related postings of the past week. I was happy to learn that
Prof. Ross Runkel has started Employment Law 101 at his
Employment Law weblog. It will be in 60 parts, posted on Mon-
Wed-Fri for 20 weeks.
I also was pleased to discover The Airport Lawyer weblog — by
Sheryl Schelin, who has some interesting insights on Freedom
of Information requests, and also shows her exquisite taste by
including a link to f/k/a on her short weblog roll. Thank you,
Meanwhile, Colin has banished your Editor to the Sixth Ring of
Hell, due to my heretical thoughts on gay priests and the Catholic
Church. Innocent as Charged!
