Darkest Night

Mijikai Haiku (December 2012)


  1. I love this 'ku--very sentimental and a wonderful tribute to CT. It is a very tragic time for those families and even our nation.

    I missed visiting here (you!). Now that I'm on my winter vacation/break, I can get to venture out again in cyberspace and visit friends like you! :) *hugs*

    Also, I wanted to thank you properly by coming over here and telling you how much I sincerely appreciate for all the support you've given me as a poet! You're the first to post a comment about my origami haiga series. I am honored and grateful for that. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I am sincerely touched! *HUGS* You are so sweet and thoughtful, dear Christine!!

    I am definitely enjoying my holidays as we speak. I need the time to recharge indeed. It has been such a crazy semester at school. I hope you are doing well, and that life has not been to hectic or stressful. And even though I don't write as often as I would like, I hope you know that friends like you are always in my thoughts. :) One of my reasons for loving our haiku/poetry community. We are always there for each other in spirit. Sending you many blessings, joy, and smiles.

    Namaste and have a lovely happy holidays!

    Much love and peace,


  2. Oh, Kathy., This is such a sweet message. Thank you for taking the time out to visit my blog. I'll be checking out your haiga series every day. You bring so much joy to the haiku community with your amazing talents.

    You take care and happy holidays!

    Much love always... Chrissi
