let it snow

tonight we huddle –
the crackling fire gives forth
all we require

    Exquisite – ‘require’, ‘huddle’, those two words are very beautiful (vowel sounds and meaning) when placed next to each other like that and so perfectly balanced.

    love the title as well as the haiku, the way it leads in and sums up, too.

    Paul and Pauline – I will refrain from any jokes about the pairing of your names and get right to the appreciation I feel for your supportive remarks here and through the years. You both and many others have been very positive about what I do. Do you think I should submit some of it? And if so, where.

  4. pauline Says:

    Poetry is often a hard sell. Start with magazines, university presses and small publishing houses. Good luck!

  5. Paul Squires Says:

    Yes I think you should submit some of it. Anywhere, everywhere there are millions of journals and some that specialise in tiny poems. Yours are some of the best tiny poems I’ve ever read and more people should be given the opportunity to experience them.

    Thank you! I am profoundly flattered. I will start by entering a contest either one of you might be interested in: http://www.thehaikufoundation.org/contest/haiku-now-contest-2010/.

    If you ever have a suggestion or constructive feedback, please feel free to divulge it!

    Thanks again…
