Introduction I started this blog for myself; simply as somewhere to bring together all of the poetry, mainly haiku, and other short-form writings I had accumulated over the years, that now lay scattered over various notebooks and at least three computers.

The decision to write new material, to comment on and recommend things that inspire me, and to throw the blog open to the world, came later, not much later admittedly, but later. After all, what is a blog for if not to inflict your crazed ramblings on the world?

And so, inspired by my (admittedly more talented) friends and colleagues Edible Rose and Tonto McDuff I shall hit the “Publish” button...
