That's the first time I've read a haiku and thought to myself, "Hey, I'm glad I read that haiku".

Most beautiful thing i've read recently and i just finished Love in the Times of Cholera.

Whoa, was Sax's writing just compared favorably to Gabriel García Márquez's? I think that's worth a sidebar link.

karina said...

There are some parallels, Eric. Both stories are about love and waiting, with a happy ending.

Eric Karros said...

That's true Karina. And Sax got the point across in a lot fewer words, and I didn't need a dictionary.

And, my haiku is in black and white, while my good friend Gabriel's (or "Gabby's", as we affectionately call him) is in cholera.

And Gabo doesn't write great puns...

SoSG, where you can find baseball-related Nobel Prize-quality writing ™.

karina, we just might use that compliment of yours on the sidebar... thank you! You're making me blush!
