How do you do it?
One gem of a haiku after another all the years long.
Thanks for enriching my views.
A McClintock haiku manages to make the simplest things so profound. As a reader, I come away with a slight epiphanic buzz; as a writer, I’m challenged to be more observant. It’s always a joy.
So wonderful. Michael’s work always inspires me.
