more than haiku

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 6:23 pm

If you stopped by the daily haiku weblogs of Matt Morden

and Paul David Mena on Sunday, you would have seen

two poems that moved me:


deepening snow

my mother struggles to remember

the names of my children


          paul david mena (Dec. 4, 2005)








in my parents house

the smell of my grandparent’s house


           matt morden (Dec. 4, 2005)



Matt Morden is accumulating a very good list of links to daily haiku

weblogs and other haiku and hokku-related sites.  I’ve put a link to

the Morden Haiku site in the Sidebar for your convenience.



At Matt’s place today, you can find a larger, color version of this photo    MordenNovLightN 

and accompanying haiku,  The effect is breathtaking.

NinjaDay  On a perhaps less sublime note, if you went over to

Blawg Review #35 today, you learned that December 5th has been

designated The Day of the Ninja.  Of course, pseudo-ninjas are even

more annoying than pseudo-haiku. 


While at BR #35 — hosted by Colin Samuels of the Inferno-themed

Infamy or Praise weblog — you will find links to some of the best

law-related postings of the past week.  I was happy to learn that

Prof. Ross Runkel has started Employment Law 101 at his

Employment Law weblog.  It will be in 60 parts, posted on Mon-

Wed-Fri for 20 weeks.  


I also was pleased to discover The Airport Lawyer weblog — by

Sheryl Schelin, who has some interesting insights on Freedom

of Information requests, and also shows her exquisite taste by

including a link to f/k/a on her short weblog roll.  Thank you,





Meanwhile, Colin has banished your Editor to the Sixth Ring of

Hell, due to my heretical thoughts on gay priests and the Catholic

Church.  Innocent as Charged!
