Poetry and Language Page

Here are some haiku written of late, some in other than English. Any earlier attempts at poetry I destroyed. Pure trash. These, I still like.

There is some other poetry that I've liked for many years, and some poetry and language resources. for reasons of their stillness, exhiliration, stateliness, sound qualities, or intricate tendrils of structure.

Also poetry of friends.

There are also some links to other resources on poetry, language and liguistics.
