Thank You Haiku to My Readers

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

In the past few weeks the kind comments I’ve received from many readers, and an increasing number of likes have made me feel that my writing is reaching and touching readers and fellow writers. So today, I want to thank all of you who take time to read my poetry, stories, and occasional observations. I have been writing since I was a child. And I have always wanted others to share in the joy I receive in creating word pictures. WordPress has provided me this opportunity.

Particularly, I appreciate the comments many of you share on a regular basis. Your observations are a creative conversation that motivates me to keep writing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  1. Beautiful words, Sky. I also agree with the other readers that you are doing a marvellous job writing these poems and stories. Keep ’em coming.

  2. Your poems are always lovely. Thanks for sharing this one. I also live in high desert and have had the rare thrill of seeing double rainbows. I knew I wanted to leave a comment, so I really thought about your choices. The idea that “rainbows rise” is very cool. I would have probably said “arch” or “reach” or “stretch”. Your word is better. The other image that struck me (and I really thought about it because I’m not sure I understand it) is the “illusive jewel”. I couldn’t quite picture the rainbows as a jewel. But a jewel can split a beam of light into the color spectrum, so does that mean your jewel is the sun? Or the water vapor or ice crystals that split the light? Then I thought about those two words and how awesome they just sound together. That’s probably reason enough to put them into a haiku. I mean, “illusive jewel” could fit into pretty much any haiku. Hey Skywalker! You’ve got me thinking about poetry like I probably haven’t done since my last college English class. Amazing. Talk about an illusive jewel… I think I just lived one.

    • Gary, you put more thought into the haiku than I did. Although, what I printed is a revision of what I first wrote on seeing the rainbow. I think your analysis is right on the mark too. Thanks for spending so much thoughtful time on my little poem.

  3. it’s always simultaneously reassuring and gratifying to realize that our thoughts and words are appreciated.

    Thanks to you for providing words worth reading.
