Doris, I don't know what this haiku refers to in the recent Olympics, but I enjoyed it and will have to check out SAra's. No, I don't watch Olympics. I am too tied up with things like the bachelor, survivor, Lost, Grey's antatomy, and on and on and on. hahaha. If you ever want sonnet help, just call out! LUv, andrea

Dear Doris, thanks for your nice comment on my poem, His Violin. My father played the violin very well, but I never became much good. However, it’s still my favourite instrument. I enjoyed your haiku about the Olympics. It’s very timely and well done. Love, Amy.

Saw the Korean skaters get disqualified, Doris. The US team came in last, appeared to put forth little effort and still took the bronze. This event made for some hard feelings. Enjoyed your poem -- so timely now! Love, Carolyn PS -- keep cheering for the amazing US Hockey Team!
