Blogger is himself misplaced....

"Bug Eric" is out of the office temporarily, and Sense of Misplaced will be on hiatus until he returns. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Many new posts will follow in the coming weeks.

Haiku seems to be making a resurgence in literary circles these days, as well as among naturalists (and friends) like Susan J. Tweit, Julie Zickefoose and Abigail Parker. Abby once committed to one haiku a day, and her verses are wonderful.

My most recent attempt to date is this:

Flaming clouds at dusk
Sear the sunset sky to black
Embers glow as stars

A previous attempt yielded something silly, based on watching traffic one morning while waiting for the bus:

Speeding trees go by
Riding in truck flowerbed
Destination home?

I would love for readers of this blog to share their own haiku poems; and also share their secrets for writing regularly in an age that eats your time before you know it is gone. Take care, friends.
