This has inspired me to write a piece of my own!

You're amazing. So much power and meaning within three lines.

I don't know how you did it, but you crept into my mind and stole my feelings, then put them into words.  I love it.

What in the world!!?? This is so profound and could totally go with everthing including living. Art is an imitation of life or vice versa. This is amazing. It strucks so hard yet sounds so soft. Amazing!

This haiku was amazing! I thinkk it pretty much describes a part of why every writer writes. Thank you for making our purpose in the world clear!

Nice! Reminds me of my poem (of the same name) that I wrote a while ago:

If you write

for long enough

til there is a continued sctrich scratch

on your paper

 

 you find yourself between the blue lines

you write yourself out of your existance

and into something you can understand

 

I start with a fantacy story

about a flower,

then I discover myself as the sun

Keep writing!

"You write yourself out of your existance and into something you can understand." I really like that.
