Hopes for the blog:
offer up the wild intersectedness of lived experience and engage others in creative, expressive, perhaps irreverant, hopefully playful, and respectful encounters....
enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

Haiku: autism landscape

built environments
perilous sensory load
k/nights without armour


  1. Nice haiku. Especially like the last line and the way it rolls out. and the playfulness with k/nights... needless to say. But there you go.


  2. the word perilous really drew me in. I can feel the environments and landscapes shifting and dropping away around me, denying them their taken for granted solidity as background. I love haiku's for their compactness. Thanks for this Harlequin :)

  3. Nice! Nights without armour/Knights without amore

  4. Great words, I love the sentence in the middle, it is great. It has a life of its own. Also the last one inspires me to thinking. Makes me wanna be bullet proof indeed.

  5. Jon-yes, it's nice how the form is able to allow so much... the syllables are quite liberating that way... the k/night bit seemed to make its way through and made sense for me and for the people inhabiting the landscape
    Derliwall.. it's the compactness that is compelling, I agree; it pushes for every word to count.Glad that Perilous worked for you
    Pisces... great word play... thanks; I'd expect nothing less from a wordsmith like you!
    Mariana.. not sure any of us can ever be bullet proof, not as far as life landscapes are concerned, but I am glad the lines carried the load for you

  6. I am always in awe of anyone who writes such. I have tried *sigh* but failed miserably. This is a beauty of one; you.

  7. Saraha-- thanks so much... btw, I am so enjoying the pieces you writing at your site.Gorgeous.

  12. An interesting development . The more I think about it, the more I admire it.

  13. Thanks, Dave--- it is a nice form... I find it also helps out with other kinds of writing. Cheers!
