Hi Jill
What a beautiful Haiku, the image of the wind gently moving the clouds with the sound of heaven ringing over.........absolutely fantastic

Haiku, insects
Giddy,

I really like this series. Especially the last two poems. I think they are clever and appealing and will resonate with lots of people. Though I do, personally, think they fall more into the senryu category than the haiku one. I would really push you to try to get these (and others of yours) pubbed in the many Japanese short-form mags available online. If you need help or suggestions, please let me know. Good luck and thanks for sharing!

    Hi Robyn, Thanks for these suggestions. Recently I have had a suite of nine haiku dedicated to the Australian aborigine accepted for publication by M Kei for Atlas Poetica. I've had a few cherita accepted by Ai Li and Larry Kimler too. But time is my problem. I think too my vision is failing. I agree the first haiku does have irony. If you have any suggestions for magazines, I would be very happy to except them and to take your advice, Robyn. Thanks again, Giddy

Hello Happy Poet, Your haiku is filled with vivid imagery, especially:

teases wispy white clouds

(also good alliteration - wispy white)

Lovely artwork choice. A pleasure to read. Keep the blue waters flowing. LateBloomer

I feel so negligent because I haven't reviewed for you at all in so long, and you've been so loyally reviewing for me. There IS an explanation, Giddy, but I simply cannot offer all of it - what I will say is this: this is a form I pretty much leave alone anymore, at least when it comes to reviewing it. I still love it, and still write it, but I am not interested in conflict, and conflicting life perspectives. I encountered the same once too often.

Your poem is simply stunning - absolute serenity evoked, and I loved it.

    That you loved my poem is reward enough and I appreciate you taking the time to appraise this one, Dawn. I have not been all that loyal to you, really, just popping in as time allowed. Summer is approaching here and my work will taper off for sure as I wilt under the relentless humidity. Please don't apologise and thanks again for stopping by, Giddy

reply by Ideasaregems-Dawn on 11-Sep-2017
    It was my pleasure (and I just realized what I wrote could be misinterpreted! Yikes! The conflict I mention was never with you, my friend.)

What an excellent subject for a poem Giddy, that God-painted Sky, is sure a marvellous theme for the ekphrasticaly inspired haiku dear girl, your somewhat of an expert now, well done, blessings, Roy

    I don't know about being an expert, Roy, because it has taken me many years to 'get' haiku and its purpose. Now I have it, I HAVE it. I don't know why I am so slow but there you are. What one person gets straight away another person takesA a long time. Blessings, my friend, Giddy

You have painted a very beautiful and scenic imagery in the reader's minds with this haiku. The imagery also goes perfectly with the topic you have chosen.

...*sigh*... This is so sweetly penned, it seems to echo those 'heavenly voices' - your satori. Yes, gentle breezes do sing to us at times, and your haiku is flawless, my friend.

BTW (Prolific writers can't always find the time to review enough to promote - my work isn't always promoted either, and seldom above a base certificate.) :))

Hi Giddy, this is a lovely haiku that left me with some great imagery. Right now I'm sitting outside looking at what you're describing, and the temperature is pleasently cooling. You are really very good at these. There was no challenge this week, course Marival is not well. Are we just to add new chapeters as we see fit? Great addition this is to the book. Hugs, Ulla:)))

    Hi Ulla, I think we have to wait till we hear from Marival, as we did last week. She posted later in the week when she felt better. I wondered in the past why there wasn't someone who could take her place, (someone on the committee I mean,). I'm so lucky to have you supporting me when I write these because you are very good for my ego, LOL. Thank you so much, lovely friend. Hugs, Giddy
