I'm always in back.

I'm prettier than she is!

Why can't you see ME?

Wow! I like it. If you took away the picture of the cows it could be a very significant human cry for help.Thanks.

How's this, Russ?

Remember the past

Twenty semesters long gone

Autumn winds shake trees

I used to write a lot of haikus back when I was a teenager. I want to thank you for reinvigorating me! I can't help but to feel nostalgic whenever the summer ends and the fall begins. Thanks again, Russ! Perhaps this hub will turn into a place where others can submit their haikus! I already did something very similar:

Let me know what you think!

Hi Dohn, nice one! Do you still have any that you have written? Could be a great hub. Hope to see more from you.

Hi Elisabeth, perfect one. I was in Cornwall last week holidaying in a mobile home overlooking some fields with a view of the ocean. It was so peaceful that I spent quite a bit of time just sitting on the step and immersing myself into the atmosphere. Many cows would walk past as they grazed the fields and then all of a sudden this one (I'm sure it's a girl cow), came and stared at me for about five mintes (a very long time in cow communication). Very sweet.

I still love the cow

Tanka:

My life seems all stuck

no echo resounds from far

Thrown back to myself:

what else to do - silly me?

Go back to your source - just be!
