The following comments are for "the guilt"
by dachish

I was pleased to see some one else who likes writing Haiku.

You have done a good job of capturing the moment.

Keep writing, keep the faith

Why thank you. This is the second one I've ever written; the first being one I did but moments before.

People used to mention writing Haiku often, and I always thought "how very stupid". I assumed, first, that it would be easy (though, I really don't need more difficulty this early in my attempts at learning to write well). And secondly, I felt "what could you possibly say in so few words".

After actually trying to write them, I see how hard they can be and how, also, they can be extremely deep. Not mine but others I've read convey profound depth that I'd never given a chance nor thought possible.

It's fair to say I'm now a huge fan of Haiku.

Actually I was attempting to do a Tanka currently, but so far I'm not having much luck. I'll get one done I'm sure after a lot of practice.
