i've been stoned

My Touchstone Award from The Haiku Foundation's Touchstone Awards for Individual Poems, 2012. My deepest thanks to THF, and to the long chain of postal employees who passed it hand to hand all the way from the United States to here in the UK. It's heavy!



  1. Wow - that's a beautiful beast! And a handy weapon if you ever had an intruder - imagine clubbing someone with your own poetry!

  2. :-) bludgeoned by thirteen syllables!

    touchstone the unexpected weight of so few words

    (metaphorically heavy too, somewhat intimidating, I'm only now starting to regain my writing balance)
