There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
That makes one stop and think!
They should always fill those things with something good, like chapagne or chocolates!
Your haiku -- as cautionary tale. Very nice.
Haunting haiku~ nice mag!
Thank you all. Eric - I agree with you 100%, lol
apt one....http://itistimetothinkformyself.blogspot.com/2010/11/magpie-42-in-55-words-why-not-enjoy.htmlmine has some awards/treats in it, enjoy the bog love.
A thoughtful haiku...ah, those hollow victories, an oxymoron for sure.
Wow! very very honest and beautiful...
Thank you all. I hope to write something cheerful one day! :o)
"A sad tale's best for winter."
Thank you. Although I actually like winter.
Hollow victory indeed but all's not lost. There's still another day. Anyway its excellent.
Sometimes it is better to lose. :)
Ah - I enjoyed this. Not normally a big fan of Haiku but this works very nicely.
Oooooh, those nine words imply a whole saga of backstory!
Thank you both. Michael, haiku isn't generally my thing either.
very nicely done. Clever haiku! Says much with very little.
Thank you Margaret :o)
It is clever and very good, I like that it leaves so much to interpretation - one can fit one's own hollow victories and interpretations of the 'loving cup' into it...
Thank you. Yes, I like to leave things somewhat vague so others can fit their experiences in, as you said.
thoughtful and full of truth. Thanks for your nice comments.
Thank you Kathew, and you're welcome!
