II: 065 - a pair of search engine senryu

one glass of wine -
Google keeps asking
"Did you mean _____?"

blind date tomorrow --
will she
Yahoo! me tonight?

an occasional senryu journal

Yesterday, I made an important decision about
this weblog. Coincidentally, this is the 100th
post here at simply haiku. With that milestone,
I'm going to stop trying to post a senryu here
every day.

You see, I've concluded that keeping up two daily
haikai weblogs has reduced the overall quality of
my poetry -- and, despite any contrary appearances,
I really do have a sense of pride.

lines ......................
From now on, then, I'm going to post once a day
at dagosan's haiku diary. If that poem seems
worth sharing at an all-senryu website, I'll post
it here, too.

So, thanks for stopping by here the past few months,
and come back to see additions or browse the Archives.
Naturally, dagosan hopes you'll visit his haiku diary often.
