Where did the crabs go?
Shells empty. Water stagnates.
Homes burn, sky still blue.

Thank you :) My dad says that's really what Haikus are supposed to do, convey emotion, without actually describing the emotion, I think.

Well, the only thing you do know is my background, from my poem Summer Nights in Algeria. Well, actually I'm only half Algerian, my mom's American. 

In Algeria(and most Muslim Countries), my name's super-common. I was named after my grandma. :)

I know what you mean, the thing is, I haVe no idea what you look like, what your body language is, I know nothing of your background, all I know is the inside of you head :) I don't even know what your voice sounds like. So I'm not sure I could say your name fits you.

I don't really know you, so I can't say if I think your name fits you. I've always loved my name, I think it fits me quite well.

You are welcome! :) 

I like what you said about my name, that's an interesting thought. 

Do you think your name fits you?

Do you think my name fits me?

Aww, thanks :) I've always wondered if I have anyone following me.

I think it's pretty, it reminds me of a white daisy with a brown center, and very bright green, vibrant leaves.

I like your name, Bryn.(It shows up whenver you do something on Teen INK because I pressed the email button) 

Anyway, it seems to really fit you. It seems like a good lord of the Rings name and it's unique.  

Random Thought: Why do you think of my name, Aicha?

Such a simple haikuu with such a powerful message behind it. I loved this a lot.

And thank you so much for commenting on my work. It really meant a lot to me. (:

Thank you, I seem to work best most often in Haikus.

I think this captures the mood of the earthquake perfectly. I also really love how it's a haiku because that's a japanese style of poetry.  It pays yet another tribute to Japan. Awesome. :)
