    Nice. I particularly like Lorin Ford’s.

  2. Chen-ou Liu

    A string of little gems.

    I particularly like the following two haiku:

    snowdrifts…
    the morning moon
    is a fist

    Evocative imagery infused with emotion.

    policy debate
    tomatoes
    ripen in the heat

    L1 successfully sets the tone for the poem, while the connotative meaning of the implied color in Ls 2&3 enhances the tone.

    Just some thoughts.

    Chen-ou

    Well put Chen-ou. Those poems both work so well. A great set!
