I’m great at mental arithmetic which they say is a strange thing for a writer to be but to me it’s all the same thing. Words and numbers: underneath them both there’s an invisible foundation of pictures.
blue moon I isolate the remaining variable
10 years without fire
full two hours
the compass in view
the sky lost
over 50 percent of these mountains
you carry face upward
in the morning one live deer
such injuries are called wounds
this imagined world.

aloha Red Dragonfly. this is so fun when you do this. fun and inspirational both. your Ku continue to wow me away into the trenches of smithereens. wow. calculating: recalculating: yes, wow.
in a recent comment you mentioned interest in seeing my response to some of your clipped-from-text haiku. one I posted last September (altho mixed digital media with scanned clippings) is here:
and. my box of clippings sits near where I sit at times along with that broken book. doesn’t it just set a drilling bug rocking into ya when you buy a good book for a great price at a used book place and then find that secretly there are pages missing?? sheesh. I know the book place did not realize that was the case as I did not realize it until I had read up to those pages. which is probably one of the reasons why pages start falling out of a book. . . . still the up side is I won’t be putting that book back into resale circulation and I have resource for future clips. . . .
way cool fun on “The Tools”. more please. and fun on. aloha. rick
Wow. That found haiku is amazing, really amazing. And a book with missing pages, what a gift! You don’t need to feel even a little bit of guilt about cutting it up …
