Note by Tom Clausen about haiku:

"Haiku has consistently appealed to me as a means of centering, focusing, sharing, and responding to a life and world bent on excess.

As the layers of my own life have accumulated, I've often felt overwhelmed by both personal changes and the mass of news, information, and survival requirements that come with being human today.

Haiku are for me a way of honoring and celebrating simple yet profound relationships that awaken in us, with a gentle and silent inner touch, a spiritual relevance that adds meaning to our lives."

Congratulations, Alan!  This will be a pleasant, creative journey, I'm sure.
I write haiku because they're there to be written ...

Many thanks Don,

I just went through the sequence of choice, and I'm still pleased with what Tom and myself achieved with the selection.
