Bach Flower Remedies : 38 Haiku http://edwardbach.org/Research/docs/haiku/haiku.html --- Yew Trees a yew tree standing in its own darkness you notice him in a crowded room everyone does we were so much alike he even shared my make-up a young man standing in his own darkness solitary tree of vast circumference evening shadows he stayed with me for the first few months but then he left a man like him needs space we live in one bedroom solitary boy in the shopping mall a few loose coins pillared shade four trees with huge trunks of intertwisted fibres we come here often resting under the yew trees on the old park bench his dad comes sometimes when he remembers pillared shade he makes this weeks rent in the coppice below the branches grassless floor of red and brown leaf litter he's a good baby never causes a big fuss just like his dad was according to grandma he can already say "dad" below the branches grassless floor of needles and swabs END

Hi Paul,
just want to say i've read your Bach Remedy haiku. Every one of them and i love them. Great simplistic photographic images also. I'm pleased you didn't use the traditional form 5-7-5 for these. They're wild flowers and need to be free.

hi

I am very interested in your biography and esp. the collaborative work you do. I have started some collaborative work but only for the page, not performance ( yet!) and it is not easy.

nice to 'meet you' and thank you for reading my work
