Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. (from ‘Sand and Foam’ by Kahlil Gibran, 1883-1931)
In late March 2010 – the month |A Twisted Pair| began – I signalled that, although I hadn’t written a new poem for a number of years, I’d been “reading other people’s poetry, and … reading about poets and poetry” (see Joy and pain and wonder).

PS: The Haiku page is still “under construction” … but you will find my most recent posts there.
