Bloggers PhotoFor all the wonderful people who post comments on my writes, Please don't mind me as I'm not much of a reader.  I've never been one to read with emotion, I'm a Technical manual, or news kinda guy.  If I pick up a book (rarely) its non fiction. So I fail to comment on much and I apologize.  It is though a great joy to be able to express my feelings with words and see them touch many of you. Thank you all1

I'm just a regular guy in my mid 30's with 4 kids (14, 12.5, 5, 3.5) and a loving wife of 14 years. I work for a power company as a computer programmer, which has its days.

My wife has been working nights and I decided to send her haiku's for fun for her late night breaks. I was in a low spot when I started and now 5 months later it has become a fun challenge finding the words :)

I may not be the most graceful writer or best user of grammar but it doesn't stop me from trying :)

I hope you all enjoy.

(Don't mind me as I try out a bunch of new forms till I find my niche :) )

A tragic story about a fight over poetry, reported in an amazing way


Blog Posted:1/29/2014 2:39:00 PM
 

Ok so someone in Russia was murdered because he fought with a friend that poetry was not “Real Literature”.  That is a very sad reason to resort to violence and I do not condone it. BUT the way the reporter wrote the article really made me chuckle.

    Making a point was she I wonder?? I am sorry a life was lost; but the journalist seemed to show her thoughts on poetry in her own way. Good morning Adam :)

    Yeah overall Poetry won out over Prose. Morning F.J. :)

    Killing a fellow human is an extreme and truly mortal sin, but posting non-poetic and extremely ugly verse written in a few minutes on a poetry site (generally speaking), is a significant sin as well. I am answering with a slight smile, to buoy up the present combination of circumstances.

    I clicked on it and it took a second to sink in what he had done. Crazy people in the world.
