Citizens! In honor of Veterans Day here in the United States, I am very honored to offer you – my most loyal members of TFD Nation – a GIFT! 🙂
Your beloved Generalissimo keeps a very low profile, befitting a Dictator who rules from the shadows. As such, you may not know that I am renowned as a poet of no small repute – specializing in haiku, the Japanese form of 3 lines of text, arranged 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.
I have been honored to be called out as one of the best Haiku writers in English following the classic Japanese form! Unlike most haiku that are focused only on nature, my poems are designed to make you FEEL powerful emotions – love, joy, sadness and more. Here are a few examples of my work:
Your lips touching mine
Sudden memory of you
…Just a falling leaf…
What clouds your vision?
The stuff that dreams are made of
San Francisco fog
Old man shivering
His daughter tucks him in bed
“Who are you, my dear?”
For the next five days, my haiku ebook is FREE on Amazon – you don’t need a Kindle to read this ebook, there is free software for PC, Mac, iOS and Android that you can download here or just read it on the Web! 🙂
Citizens, please show TFD some love if you have enjoyed my site and hard work – read my poetry and give your Dictator’s book a 5-star review on Amazon if you truly like it! Share the link with friends, family and anyone who you know enjoys great poetry!
With respect and hoping you all enjoy my work – TFD
