no sure repentance

    Lovely! I wrote one book of haiku several years ago. A collection of my impressions of living in a new landscape…I printed it at home and hand-sewed and bound a set of ten small books. It was great fun 🙂 Haiku are wonderful for seeing the essence…for boiling down the sauce.

    D.F., I somehow think of the expected longer solar flares in 2012 and the lack of repentance on the part of earth dwellers in the face of predicted new natural disasters. Your haiku packs a whollop!

    “No sure repentance”– you are right on. Thoughtful haiku…

    “fire in a frigid hole”
    I can’t assume to get the emotional essence to these three lines… but I like the play on irony…

    I love that you experiment! Your versatility continues to draw me in! I rather enjoyed this haiku. I’m always curious as to what I interpret between the lines…not being sure of my own understanding, but isn’t that the fun part? Debra

    I like the last line best.

    Stray away, David! I love your poetry, whether accepted forms or not, it has such soul.
