A New Start

After much deliberation and un-knotting of various threads of thought, I have decided to start over with my pursuit of haiku (and the like) writing at a new site. If you are into haiku and those kinds of writings, please consider following me there. And, ahem, I’ve decided to use my real name this time (cough, cough, cough). And I may be bringing some of the haiku written here over to there soon.

Anyway, I hope many of you find your way there to :

Awaiting Revelation

flickers of hope –
under trees and
beside streams –
a depressed mind and spirit
awaiting revelation.
