Laura! Thanks for the review! I'm glad to see someone made their way to my writing ~_I really love these, especially the last lines: "parents rejoice," "climbing into bed" I get excited when I find good poetry on here; I'm going to read more of yours!

Hey. :) Thanks for the review.
This was cool. I'm a big fan of haikus, although I can't seem to write them. Maybe I just haven't tried hard enough-but I don't know. I tend to not be great at setting my thoughts down so concisely. You did a good job, though. I think I liked "November" best.

I quite enjoyed this.

Absolutely brilliant! Your construction is flawless and you bring new flavor to English Haiku. It honors the natural cycle in the same way that Japanese Haiku does and yet it captures scenes that are uniquely American. Well done!

Wow i really like the idea of the way you set this up. It was a great idea that worked really really well. For me the seasons are all opposite so i got confused at first. A real joy to read this, simple but effective.~Dana

I like many of the images you use in these...I dunno, it's still not...traditional Asian enough for me! But I'll stop bitching about that now...because you know I love you and I really do think there is a place in this world for both styles :)

| Sakura Taking chapter 1 . 2/17/2006
That's a very interesting perspective of a year. You did a marverlous job at creating this in haiku form. Very well done.

I really like this. Especially January — "People tired of parties" — and November.

Hello there! These haikus are absolutely wonderful. Each month conveying something different, yet sharing a mutual theme: warmth. i love them! I love the April and December one especially. So powerful...this arrangement somewhat reminds me of the brilliant film Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter,...And Spring. The film shows a progression of events, with each season holding its beauty and tranquility. All in all, wonderfully written. _

These are adorable. I think my favorites are July & October. Although, December was awfully nice, too. Perfect in haiku form!
