I think you will find the following poems very interesting. I know I certainly enjoyed writing them. I'm going to be taking a short sabbatical due to surgery so I want to try to get some poetry in before I go. Haiku and Tanka are a real delight to my soul and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Some Haiku and a Tanka

I will be facing a four and one -half hour back surgery on Monday June 24. I will then be facing an 18 month rehab afterwards. I don't know how long it will be before I am able to write again. So I wanted to post as much of my poetry as I could during the meanwhile. Hopefully I can get some payments coming in this way.

The Fox

The fox was pretty
standing knee deep in the
snow bank beside us.

A Father’s Love

Children need a father’s love
there is no doubt about that
as my son would be
more than will to state
to anybody who wants to know.

Dog acting natural

The dog just did what
comes natural to a dog
when she was hungry.

Puppies Grow

The puppies soon grew
into full grown dogs just as
puppies always will.

Incidentally the cinquain is an American invention by a lady poet who combined the Haiku and the Tanka together to create it.
Tanka is 5-7-5-7-7 if I am not mistaken.
None the less write for the love of the art not to earn money from it and all that there is will automatically radiate through your being and bring about the audience you want. Its not about the number of points you get out here on Wikinut but the audience you capture with your works and I tell you this as a former writer here on Wikinut who took time between 26th June 2010 till 3rd February 2012 to earn 10 quid out here with an audience of about about 3000-4000 a day and 30000 in a month. I have restarted my writing but on Facebook until I get my website up and running again and have touched my audience that I used to have out here on Wikinut out there in a month since opening my public profile.
None the less, I am sorry to hear of your back surgery and this would mean being confined to bed for a while, having physio etc. plus being medicated for the pain etc. Do take care and I pray for your safe and speedy recovery. You can always dictate and have a family member post it for you.
