So sad, so little, but oh so true.

sad but true.

Ah, that cynical humor that stabs the bitter truth that appears in nearly all your poetry. This one really hits home despite its shortness. Powerful poem. You're just as good at haiku as you are the really long 500 word poems. You're amazing.

nicely and accurately described. keep on going!

How could eighteen simple words stir up THIS much sadness, bewilderment, ANGER?
YOU, my friend, have a gift.
I encourage you to ignore the two nay-sayers in the review. With all due respect to their opinions; I'm willing to bet that by lengthening this piece - it would have inevitably lost it's power to, um, punch the reader square in the gut.

So true... I like how u emphasize on the tans to represent the superficiality of out culture, but close the haiku with the harsh truth of today's world.
| Spootasia Tomoe 1/2/06 . chapter 1
i loved this. you have such a way of packing so much into so few words. very powerful, ironic and sad. it feels very american in style and reasoning, especially with the reference to the tans (because that's just what our culture would focus on, huh? ;)
strong, complex, but straight forward. a beautifully done, artistic protest; it makes one think. bravo!

After reading that, I'm suddenly reminded of a man I live near. His son just died the other day in Iraq. I feel bad for him.
Thanks for the advice on my writing. I very much appreciate it. For awhile now, I’ve been trying to get advice from a few other people but none of them would help. You’re awesome.

really, really powerful
| StitchedTogether 12/29/05 . chapter 1
This poem is amazing. It is so simple and powerful. I don't think it would've been as powerful if it was a longer poem.
| AIB 12/21/05 . chapter 1
brilliant. the simplicity of the haiku only heightens the truth in its words. brilliant.
| LilLaTLuv 12/15/05 . chapter 1
Sad. So very sad. It draws out a lot of feeling for such a small poem. GREAT JOB!
Luv ya,Tashi :)
