Lucie, daisies-
You get me so- I've noticed you "get" many. You have a gift of poetic spirit, I think. You write so well, and you read hearts. You always read my heart.
How cool that you knew I wanted title. (there's a story here, but I'm on alert, so you will have to use your imagination.I have a young teenager- nuff said!)
I love "Evident". It is perfect. Thank you! Love to all and daisies, everywhere!

Spring Smiles...
Elizabeth, you got it, girl...I love Haiku, this is an excellent expression.

Song and dance
Love the blithe, unpunctuated compression in the final line of this haiku: 'Daisies dance, I sing' would be merely trite, but 'Daisies dance I sing' is trippy-cool, and as Lucie stated, so much more evocative...

a very good haiku. I have only recently attempted Haiku, and find it very difficult to make a good contrasting statement like "Daisies dance I sing" Very good. I'll keep trying

Robin! It is so nice to see you! I have read your recent submissions, but haven't had time to adequately do them justice. I will be by when time permits. You sound good. Hope you are. Spring is uplifting and I send you my best thoughts for a rejuvenated spirit at this time of renewal!
Caitlin, I remember your poem about your brother. It touched me. Your words, both submitted and in comments- carry truth, poetry, and weight. I appreciate your comments about my submissions.
I think most haiku should be tested against punctuation. The simplicity of form allows for the interpretation, and should hold up with each. I think true haiku, ie. natural world, is easier for universal feelings. Easy to invoke the "nature" of nature... Senryu, or however it's spelled, is a bit more difficult. I mean the haiku form about "human nature". Bobby 7L is a master at this site, experimenting in all kinds of "ku-ish" word plays.
I am more traditional in my haiku. It is not for any reason other than trying to follow "rules" in art-play. It makes for good practice. Same rule holds true in graphic arts, or music, or I suspect any art form. My studies were in graphic art. Please, some time, look at my haiku "Evanescent"- for my brother.
TC you seem like sunshine whenever you show up. We should get a lit dance going! Maybe Ivor will see this and start a spring fling!
Brian, I have seen and admired your offerings here. Have little time now, but fully intend to read more and comment much more! Thanks for reading and commenting!
to all- best blessings-

thanks for commenting on my offerings. appreciate!
