Kirsch 祁建德 (@Rheumatologe) says: December 11, 2012 at 11:02 am Good one, your haiku grasps the feelings one gets reading “The littel match gril” by Hans Christian Andersen. Congrats! Reply brudberg says: December 11, 2012 at 1:01 pm I love the contrast between keening (wich I interpret in a positive way) and homeless woman.

I really, really like Winter Rain. Reply dulcinaandgnome says: December 12, 2012 at 2:29 pm Well, I cannot see any humor in your excellent haiku (have I lost anything …?), very realistic, about a beggar in the street, a poor old woman lamenting from her cardboard box in this cold night, the last of the year, so sad, so true, unfortunately… Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
