This Cinquain... I left as a comment at Ashi Words, I'll add that -> Ashi 2, as listed in the links on the right, is Jen's very interesting and participative haiga blog. Well worth the visits!


I write
and of these words
that fall out of my mind
I keep some that I never said
not said

Hmmmmmm...secret words, secret thoughts. Every one needs a few of those. :) Nicely done, Doug.

Makes me wonder if the unused words were better or worse than those chosen to be spoken (but that's just the way my mind works, so don't mind me).

You chose just the right words here, Magyar.

The silence makes good use of "non-words"...

I love how you play with words, sometimes playful, sometimes reflective but always always poetic

Yeah, i guess simplicity is the key to write a great Haiku !
Just to awnser the question you left in my blog; Magyar, the Portuguese Muffin is a pastry recipe from the Islands of Azores,which are also part of our territory.
Most Portuguese Imigrants that went to the U.S. came from this islands.Especially the Island of S.Miguel in the Azores.
So, since i am from Lisbon i am more acquainted with the local pastry, like the Portuguese egg tart.

All the unsaid words--discretion is the better part of valor.
