    Hey man, awesome site. This seems to be working really well! I’m really looking forwards to seeing more.

    Thanks Chris-

    Great to hear from you. And I am glad you like the site. Laurence and I are really keen to get some submissions from you (when you have the time). Good luck for the Haiku Literary Festival!!!!

    This is a lovely one (the articles were quite interesting as well).

    Still haven’t been able to come up with any “newsworthy” haiku– at least not yet.

    Thanks Josh. Yeah, I was surprised to see that this news story was not covered in any newspapers apart from the Mainichi Times. Effectively there was no coverage of the discovery in the West.

    I am sure that something news worthy will come up at some point. I do really look forward to getting a submission from you.

    All the best,
