  1. Morning Quilly!

    Thank you for the visit. I like this short piece, it made me think of my Beloved.

    If I may ask, who is David? You mentioned him in your comment to me.

    I’m just dying to know 🙂

  2. i sincerely hope this won’t be taken amiss and i’m sorry if i happen to hurt any feelings but i have to spit it out.

    if you were writing a verse about haiku, fine. but haiku, this is not! not even senryu or zappai for that matter.
    i have a feeling (correct me if i’m wrong) your schools have taught haiku as some sort of a syllable-counting exercise, and by doing so done a huge misjustice to the form.
    haiku is NOT about 17 syllables and the vast majority of things written in 5-7-5 have nothing in common with haiku whatsoever.
