Tickled Pink (Again!)

Image of a very proud (as chuffed as your scribe perhaps) vendor of hats near the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, Tibet.Dear Gentle Reader,

A haiku I offered via a comment has migrated to a posting...

Raph, a denizen of the Camelopardalis system, has included my haiku here!

I am chuffed!

Hi - thanks for visiting!
Am just off to Raph's site to try and locate your haiku. Like your blog a lot and think that cat is pretty clever taking the photograph - so shall put you (and the cat) on my blog list. Call again!

That Haiku was brilliant! Very visual.

That's a fun haiku.

I love the self-sorting nature of this chaotic blogger universe. Great stuff.

I've been looking at the photograph to see the connection, Sepiru Chris - maybe some hidden microflorets? I notice there are small mops for sale - yes! To de-floret our kitchen walls after thwacking!

Hey, thanks for the props and stuff. Always nice to gain a fan of my scribblings.

Love the haiku. An under-appreciated art form.

Congrats, Scribe!! Aloha-

Weaver of Grass,

The pleasure was mine. If you come back, use the 'poetry' label to find the page Raph was talking about.


Thanks Bindu. Though, like Newton, I stood of the shoulders of giants.

["If I have been able to see further than others, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants." Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727)]

To get what I mean, you have to read the posting I have linked to, and I know you have.

[Raph would like Newton because he was a polymath who was phenomenal at time management, like Raph, and he also created the first practical reflecting telescope, which makes it easier for Raph to see us and vice versa.]


I couldn't have put it better myself. You have quite a way with words, Sandy!


I thought he looked as chuffed as I felt. (Which is why that is written in the hidden title of the picture--apply mouse to discover; its an ancient druidical earth talent...)

And you are so correct, I thought those mops might be handy after Littl' Nicky starts work on creating his Floret frescos in the kitchen. I just did not want to say it out loud.


Fine work ought to attract praise in a reasonable universe. One day I will screw up my courage to attempt something like your flash fiction. But not yet. I like prolixty still.



Tschuess all,

I do love that photo!!! and I enjoyed this haiku _very_ much.

SO, here is mine, written to a friend who was a lovely mixture of Chinese/Japanese and was Jewish, to boot.

Wing Wu Li,
Friends, you me.
Occidental, Oriental.
Shalom! Hai.

Anyway. That's it from the Western Hemisphere tonight, 6 Feb.
Love to Pommes.
