I wish I could go on a haiku walk! Let me know if you're ever in the USA!

Hi Alison,

If I come over, I'll definitely have one or more haiku walks, and love it if you can join in on one or more. ;-)

There's nothing planned for this year but who knows, maybe next year! ;-)

Thanks for the haiku => tanka suggestions. I will think it over some!

Old dog, new tricks and all that jazz! I was just getting the hang of haiku!
