  7. I like the form. I really dislike texting. Sorry. I'm old and being quite stubborn about the evolution of how we communicate.

  8. I may not do NaisaiKu, at least not this week either. I will peek in at your link.
    Susan's comment rings a bell with me, I don't do texting either. In fact I had Sprint disable it so I wouldn't exceed my quota. :-)

  9. Lovely write..
    But, i have two points to make-
    1. I just felt that the "sandwich" word (The title) could have been different, perhaps a metaphor for twilight or even its synonyms. It was just a passing thought, since i felt that repeating words in consecutive lines would hamper the enunciation.
    2. The SMS lingo; like susan pointed out earlier, I feel that complete words would immensely add to the beauty of the write,(But, thats just me).

  13. Hi Susan, I tried to keep the texting language to a minimum and I also put up a text free version for us oldies!

    Hi Jim, thanks for your informed comment, I don't do cell phones myself, unless I really have to and I've never used text language yet. However, in this little poem I felt it was the right thing to fit the Cyberspace theme, I tried to only use it like one might insert a French word or sentence into a piece now and then. Thanks for visiting STG.. and I really enjoyed reading your blog yesterday, thank you!

  14. Hi !nverse! Poignancy, Thank you, Point 1) metaphor? I'm not that clever... what I tried to do in version one was to use THE TITLE as three things, a)as the third line of a Haiku style verse. b) as The capitalised central title, to identify it as a NaisaiKu.. c) as the first line of the re-verse Haiku. In version two, I shortened THE TITLE so the 'sandwich' would take on what I thought was a blinking effect!
    Point 2) Okay fair point, and I've taken your advise and ajusted the first version to complete words.
    Thank you so much for your critique, evolution can be a painful process, sometimes!

  15. Hi Pretty You!!, with my first version I tried the same thing as you did with your re-verse Tanka, not as cool as yours though, but I tried...

    Thanks Crafty Green, I would be honoured if you did one!

    Hi Tony, it's a bit like a tax return, don't do it unless you have to!

  16. Although I am not into text messages but it suits the second verse. If it suits the mood, then its ok with me!
