is all that chatter
about me?

    i really like those words isolated in the 3rd line. you also leave the question open enough for us to come to our own conclusions. so happy to have read this today. thanks & smiles

    Bill,

    Believe it or not, I just read your entire weblog. Some true gems in there, it's hard to believe that you have only recently picked up this art. I think that anyone who enjoys haiku (and even those that don't) would enrich their lives by reading your blog. I know that I have. Please keep up the fine work.

    Collin

    pinetrees, echo of caws
    as three silhouettes fly off
    one caw remains

    Bill,
    This one made me think about Issa.

    I especially enjoy haiku

    that have an "old school" feel to them.

    sparrows song
