I have been lying in bed nursing this bloody cold or whatever that I have contracted and to stave off boredom read Don Wentworth's Past All Traps (more regarding which here).
It is a refreshing gathering of concentration, informed throughout by the true spirit of haiku. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, so I will only cite two that I especially liked:
The life of the mind
will be the death
of us all
Pinching the bridge
of my glasses
for cleaning --
Get better soon Frank.ReplyDelete

Excellent haiku, especially the second. An experience I've had.ReplyDelete
I got home from surgery yesterday, so we can sheer each other on at the moment. Consider yourself cheered on!
Very, very kind of you to share. Thanks. I'm so very glad you liked it. Hoping that you turn the corner on this cold.
