    Smile A poem I wrote published in a wall calendar

    I have no share in the profits of this calendar. None. A free copy was issued only.

    commercial link to 2018 Haiku Calender removed

    My poem appears on the February page. Cindy M*****.

    The publisher is small and independent. I am not posting on his behalf. I've not notified him of same.

    It's nicely crafted and the first time I'm published in print.

    Happy Holidays and New Year to all.

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.

    I didn't find February; Mr. Harris apparently did.

    No rhyming with "February" ... it's a Haiku poem.

    If you go to such lengths to argue that you make no profit from the link it just shows you're fully aware that it is a commercial link.

    Ditto.

    I drew a cartoon once, for a blog, and it ended up being printed in some Irish newspaper; had about three cartoon printed in local papers, as well, via that blog...one was about 'peak grit', in a winter edition. I'm no Carl Giles, but I suppose they're ok for a small rag.

    Iíll add my congratulations, too. I once had an original effect published in an issue of the Society of American Magicianís magazine, M-U-M, so I know how exciting a feeling it can be. I have no talent for writing haiku, though.
