Hello! Gary Goch! After I sent you some haikus, I registered in haiku corner. Now I found my haikus being above this space. I am a non-English speaking person, so I fear my English apts not to be right. My haikus above are ok? kaz

Dear Mr.Gary Goch; I received your very nice postcard, March 13. I am interested in English HAIKU now. The latest ones are "the reflection of the clouds / in a few soap bubbles / shivering with March air " " closer to the cherry blossoms / a catterpillar sleeping / a sunny afternoon " "drooping as if combed / the willow branches / moonlit zen temple " "how often I would play tricks! / no more now / April fool's day " I would like to send you an airmail, too. Keep in touch. kaz(for short)

Dear Gary,
That was a beautiful reading last night at Sunset Poetry by the Bay.

And don't be a stranger. Next time you're in the Tricycle universe, stop by the Haiku Corner. "What it is, is --> up to you."
