  2. Hi Monica,

    My love for haiku poetry goes back to high school here in Chicago where we had classes in it. I won a city prize with one of mine, and I will share it with you here (remember I was young and inexperienced):

    Waves rise in anger
    and assail the helpless shore.
    Behold the storm’s wrath.

    Hugs, Rich

  3. Thanks for the introduction to your grandfather’s work. I am also publishing my lifelong works via my blog an American Haiku, so I find an affinity to his work. I’m looking forward to reading both your’s and his. I simply call my poems Satoris, since they don’t fit into the true Haiku form.

      • Yes. I know my stuff is not Haiku. It’s not even Haibun. But it is based on the principle of “aware” that Bashō describes as his intent in writing in that style. It’s an opening of the senses to a moment in time that I find impossible to limit to the 3 lines 17 syllables of a true Haiku. I’m starting to call them Satoris for that reason.

  5. Bonjour ou bonsoir MOPANA
    S’il existe un sentiment
    Pas toujours perçu a sa juste valeur, c’est bien l’amitié

    Elle est beaucoup plus sincère et profonde

    Que la simple camaraderie

    Redonne souvent de l’espoir quand la vie est difficile
    L’amitié ne s’épanouit de respect et d’honnêteté
    Voila donc pourquoi, jouir de ton amitié
    D’une personne comme toi, est un immense privilège
    Que rien au monde ne serait remplacer
    Je te souhaite une belle et agréable journée ou soirée

    Je te fais de Gros Bisous.
