Gong echoes down the valley
Snow leopard’s ears twitch

  7. Hello there … Just dropping by to tell you that I nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award (Typing Machine Version):
    You can check it out at the end of this post http://wp.me/p60vo-4ah
    All my best wishes. Aquileana 😀


    • Hello there! What a surprise given that my blog has just about become a ghost town. 🙂 I do appreciate your nomination and gift but had decided long ago not to participate in blog awarding. Just that you think enough to nominate me is an honor itself. Many thanks, Aquileana! You have quite a blog there…I stopped a bit and read some of the mythology. What fascinating stories and the paintings are exquisite. Have a good day, Gayle. 🙂

  8. Ah, very much in the spirit of Basho. I love it, Gayle.
    “The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.” Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), Japanese poet of the Edo period

    I hope you are planning to attend our virtual 100,000 Poets for Change at The BeZine blog and to link in one or two of your poems on poverty, homelessnes or other poem that addresses peace, sustainability and justice issues. You are encouraged.

    Enjoyed my visit with you today, Gayle.
    Warmest regards,

    • Thanks so much, Jamie. Oh, and I love Basho’s haiku…superb! Had not read that one before. I’m just now getting back in the groove of writing again. Would it be okay if I could find some previous postings that may work if I can’t “squeeze” something out of my brain? 🙂 Always feel grateful for your visits, Jamie.

      • Absolutely. We’re going to put up Mr. Linky, so you can put in links to work. Really, does not have to be new just in the spirit of the event and its concerns. Also, if you’d rather you can put the poem in a comment, but I think you know how to use Mr. Linky. Hooray! So happy and grateful that you are going to be part of this, Gayle.
