new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block
Vassilis,thanks for the Ed Baker dedication. Ed's a contemporary master haijin who's practised his craft all his life and received too scant attention from the mainstream haiku crowd (and who sometimes is even boorishly derided by people who frequent your wonderful site and who should know better). . It's a privilege to call Ed Baker my friend and teacher.
For Ed, too" to be fleeting yet staying"-- Baker haiku
Thanks for the great send-up, Vassilis.Always an honour and a privilege to be following a colossal academic bore on a comment chain. Bare-assed genius is never embarrassed. The grand art of parody lives on!!To be briefin one's briefs -- "mooning" the Moon! -- I.C.U.P II (Kick Shin Period)
Dear Conrad,Thanks for your feedback on “Perspective Distance,” which happened to be triggered by one of Ed’s language-accompanied drawings. Dear Tom,The poem “Perspective Distance” was not meant to be a send-up of the work of the artist it is dedicated to nor should it be interpreted as such.Thank you both for being such steadfast followers of my blog.
Yowza! Lovely and spacious, Vassilis. A fine tribute to Ed's work....
