Featured poem for April by :  Soen Nakagawa

The path continues
      spring rain





          The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

                - Bertrand Russell


A haiku is the expression of a temporary enlightenment, in which we see into the life of things... It is a way in which the cold winter rain, the swallows of evening, even the very day in its hotness, and the length of the night become truly alive, share in our humanity, speak their own silent and expressive language.

- R. H. Blyth

Poems of the month:  May 2015

a petal
in my tea cup

and the life we knew
is no more
what, if anything
may be worthy of a stone
