  1. Thank you Barb. I went whacky a bit but it's over and done now. Foolish courage.

  2. Beautiful haikus Barb! Such an affirmation of courage that has the eternal spirit to keep being strong!

  3. Thank you for the prompt, Barb! These are lovely haiku, and the picture is worth, well, more than 1,000 words, or 2,000 words as the case may be.

  4. Thanks Barb for this wonderful prompt!

  5. It was not over and done. My poem was dark, one called it "kind of a comedic/noir thing".
    This replacement poem is a lighter unhappy but not dark poem.

  6. Courage comes in many disguises.

  7. I have to admit that I have looked askance once or twice at the memes doing the rounds in our blogosphere, so I wasn't immediately sure about whether or how to respond when Dave at Pics and Poems tagged me with the challenge to provide seven unusual facts about myself. I have a couple of secrets to get off my chest though, and that seems like reason enough to participate.
    It is with a certain level of perverse pleasure that I have chosen you to help carry the torch forth. Tell us all 7 unusual facts about yourselves and then pass the challenge on to another 7 lucky bloggers. And remember, Dave made me do it.

  8. Thanks for inspiring me.

  9. It seems my language skills need to be strengthened, because I totally can not read your information, but I think this is a good BLOG
