    1. Convert, good sir, it’s nice to hear from you. Did you hear about the scourge? (They aren’t mine exactly, as most things on this blog go, but they were one of my most excrutiating attempts at making mine.)

  1. The Scourge? I don’t think I heard about it. Was that a past post?
    I was introduced to Haiku in grade school and saw it pop up from time to time as an interesting frivolity but I never stopped to really enjoy it until this post.
    I think becoming fluent in talking in Haiku would be a most rewarding and annoying endeavor.
