  1. I don't think I have enough anatomical knowledge to appreciate this piece, but I do like that you focused on the pose, and the feelings it symbolizes/evokes.

    Also, you have the best music going, and I often leave your site up with your Mix of the Moment playing the whole time I'm online. Thanks for providing my soundtrack.

  2. What a creative haiku to express the woman's leaning. Also have to admit I have a crush on Diana Krall :)

  4. Free fall, but don't forget to hold your nose. I like to dive in a Napoleon hat.

  5. hedgewitch,

    The truth of the matter is that I have no anatomical knowledge. I've been easing myself into a sense of yoga/physical therapy which drew me into the posture of this gal shown in the interesting photo.

    I looked up muscles and grabbed the 'right' few that seemed to fit both the pic and the sound.

    Thanks for mentioning the 'mix'. Few have mentioned any of the youtubes; none that 'mix of the moment'. That you like it reinforces my belief, in looking at your profile, that we tapped into very similar stuff, indeed!

    Pleased to make your acquaintance!

  6. dustus,

    Haikus are, in some ways, 'easy'. I don't want to know what a Japanese master might think of what we all hereabouts consider English and execute as English lang haiku. I'm chastened by the inevitable remonstrance!

    Thank you for tapping in. I'll drop by!

  7. Gay,

    I carry a strength and a weakness all in one: tension. Torsion. The scholastic litteratéurs might suggest I 'unpack' a lot of what I compress, and sometimes I relax enough to do so.

    I'll visit your site!

  8. Tess,

    Falling into a horizontal hat, one needs must be careful of the corner folds?

  10. Claudia,

    When I can 'go medical', I like the opportunity. I know nothing of medicine per se, but it's so not what poetry is that working in the 'practicality' and 'science' and 'materiality' of it -- and changing the materiality to something 'else' -- that's where I find interest. As in: can I do it?
