dim sum adds up

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 10:26 pm

Yes, f/k/a is way behind schedule today.   dagosan spent several hours

sharing excellent dim sum and conversation at the Tai Pan Restuarant, in

Halfmoon, New York, with two wise and amiable haiku masters, Yu Chang

and John Stevenson.   Upon returning home, there was only one thing to

do: take a very long nap.  Next thing I knew, it was 9 PM.

 

buddha  Sated and sleepy, I’m going to choose a pair of extra-tiny poems by

my two Honorable Hosts, and then present an oldie by dagosan that John and

Yu helped improve (and shorten) over lunch.   I hope your mid-July Saturday

was as pleasant as mine.

I count

my blessings

my hopes

just so high

 

 

 

 

 







summer

in the sun

in your room
