JoAnn, I love all these short, pithy poems. Humor, insight, observation. I especially like the brown wallet one from a few days ago--congrats on your new book, too! Good to skim through these and catch up! xo, Laura

I like your haiku-sign idea, and wouldn't mind seeing them around. Too bad they still let people use those pesticides.

Oh my goodness! I've never seen one of those. Your words are much more powerful!
