                                                                                                  on the windowsill
                                                                                                  two canaries singing
                                                                                                  to each other
                                                                                                  I tweet and retweet
                                                                                                  NeverEnding Story

My Dear Friends:

NeverEnding Story crossed the 250,000 view mark this morning.

Stats:

Pageviews yesterday: 490
Pageviews last month:14, 220

I am grateful for everyone who has been a part of this poetry journey. And look forward to reading your new haiku/tanka (see 2015 anthology submission guidelines for haiku and tanka )

A haiku or a tanka without "rhetoric" was likely to be no more  than a brief observation without poetic tension or illumination.

-- Donald Keene, The Winter Sun Shines in: A Life of Masaoka Shiki, p 57.
