Bill said:A fine ku, Rita. That direct address is not the sort of thing I'd be likely to do, but you make it work. Do I detect the influence of Robert Wilson?
Robert Wilson had led my first steps in haiku when I was lucky enough to join his yahoo "Simply Haiku"group on 2006. I consider him a master.so, I guess that I am influenced by him.In fact, this haiku was one of my short poems published in one of my books.I just broke it into two fragments. I had a tendency towards short poems which I used to call: flashes or embers.When I discovered haiku, I got addicted to this form of poetry because it is exactly what I like to write.
