I was searching the archive of posts here for a haiku I wanted to rework and I realised that I started this blog in August of 2009!
It’s already been five years – I’m surprised and kinda pleased that people still visit after that long! Now, I’m not sure I’ve written five years worth of quality posts (365 posts total), but I’m happy with a few of them at least and have been thrilled most of all with the people I’ve met through the blog.
Writing can be lonely and it’s great to have the support of everyone who visits, even if it’s only once, though I deeply appreciate the support of folks who stop by regularly.
So thanks everyone, hope you stick around!
Here’s a poem and a photo – haven’t posted either for a while now by the looks of things. (and a quick link – a haibun just went live at foam:e!)
the rain always
finds an upturned face
but no mythology
just the ocean
waves onto old sand
without even a hair-like whisper
of the horrible things
it knows about us
just a rhythm
and endless, endless forgiveness
