This peice is beautiful. Not because you used fancy elaborate words but because there is so much truth in it. I mean, for almost all of us here at this website writing is up there with oxygen, it's how we express ourselves and your completely right, that is what we are all striving for. Thank you for writing this. (:

wonderful!i love it. so simple and to the point, but yet, it paints a picture in your head that express so many words in your head, it's like a bird flying through the air and it brings color into the sky. I loved the poem!

This touches my soul. Because I truly feel the same! I could read it over and over. If you get the chance check out my new opinion essay on animal rights/vegetarianism. -thanx

I absolutely loooove this!
And I have a question- I am trying to submit a haiku but it is not 100 characters and it won't let me submit it. How would I do this?

Yes! I have a haiku I would like to submit but it is not 100 characters in length! Would someone please tell me how to submit it? It apparently can be done- there are a lot of short haikus on this website!

Wow. So much emotion and power in just seventeen syllables. I often have the problem that my poems are just SO long. I have trouble using few words. Am doing it write now! Anyway- I greatly admire your talent.
