haiku and not-haiku from Mark Holloway @forgottenworks
Hello, Mark,There's a way of life in this little poem, the truth exquisitely said. I've been away from poetry for a few years, but it is wonderful to hear your voice again. Thank you for your poetry.
Grant! Absolutely DELIGHTED to see you up and about again. And with a new blog? I'll be following! Must admit, I've been on the verge of binning this blog on several occasions ... somehow I'm still here, but I don't seem to get any surer of my own voice :-) I don't really call what I do poetry, though, as it's simply writing what's there. It's beachcombing! Great to see you back, Grant.
"Writing what's here" is a path and a mystery. And as you so wonderfully say "paying attention" is the practice. There's much wisdom in your way of being and writing, Mark, that I lost touch with, that I'm trying to recover. The work is truly beachcombing, even in a small town in Ohio.
:-) We do what we can. We're all landlocked.
