Buried By Haiku

I'm here
amongst the huge pile of haiku.
Can you see me?
I hope you do.

A short and very enjoyable haiku! Very cute!
Funny stuff, Mary! With so many personal and serious pieces, it's nice to catch a glimpse of your humor! ! Brian
MARY...SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK WHERE YOU ROCK SO WELL HAIKU IS THE SIMPLEST LOOKING VERSE FORM THAT REQUIRES THE MOST COMPLEX OF IMAGE CONCEPT, AS A PITCTORIAL STORY UNIQUELY UNFOLDS IN 17 SYLLABLES....YOUR WORK IS ESPECIALLY UNIQUE AS IT IS A HAIKU ON ITSELF...A DIAMOND CHIP EXAMPLE OF CONTEMPORARY FORM....QUITE CLEVER INDEED, MARY''''''''''''''FRANK
I dug your verse out Shovelled away all the soil And enjoyed your wit
Ah yes, but message always comes across loud and near. Love Duncan
Mary First instinct-write you haiku, then send you shovel, or both in one. I don't particularly like Haiku, but I have to admit I wrote a boatload of them-a good focusing exercise. Thanks for the smile. Phillip Michael Sawatzky
I like your poem(I think!) . Luckily haiku are short so the digging out shouldn't require much effort, no matter how big the pile! -Rick :)

I see you Mary! This is beautiful, it made me laugh...nice rhymes. The secret is to wait until John logs out and then post your poem. Good Luck! Kenneth
