My skin is crawling because of the amount of spiders and bugs I have seen in this house this summer! I wish my cat could come into the house but I have too many allergies, so he is outside eating everything out there. And I am in here with the spiders. Thanks friend.

Great reminder, ML.. PROTEIN ))) Chokas are fun. Hope all is well with you. People in San Francisco sell and eat bugs. Eeeuuww. Panagiota. My Trail of Dreams poem kills me,))) tons of reads. No comments, I think it was you who told me the reads are very important, Does my poem need a strong anti perspirant?.just kidding you ROFLMAO I am happy for the reads. Very! Panagiota. xoxo

Poetry is poetry of any fact, cat watching, spider crawling, alligator watching prey, hunter preparing the aim ... Haiku is to describe nature, senryu is joke, politics, expertises ... your writing is excellent for sure... salute alkas

Greetings, Alkas! What a supportive compliment from you, Alkas! Thank you for your explanation of the various types. My only Senryu to date is The Malevolent Man. I was pleased with that write. Panagiota

Oh! I really like this one. It's so imaginative, cute, and real---all at the same time. Delightful, Panagiota. Best wishes, Gershon

What a fun write it was for me. Love this form. Cannot do haikus and the other "k.u..poetry" Worse Gershon, I don't understand them. It's like the sound of one hand clapping. I understand English haiku not Japanese Haiku. The few I wrote were accidents..the Choka works.))) Panagiota
