I got back from a week's trip to China and I'm way behind in my work. Did you know that China controls their internet so there isn't Google, Facebook, or Blogspot? So I couldn't post while I was there.
I did write my poem-a-day, I just couldn't post it. I'll try to catch up. Mostly I wrote haiku because like Basho, I found it was easy to work out poems in my head while I was walking visiting the sights and then write the poem down in the evening when I got back to my hotel room.
So here is the haiku for January 9, 2015
Over date line and time zones
I enjoyed the word play on this poem since I was travelling to the Orient. Now that I'm home, my body still hasn't adjusted to the time change and sitting on an airplane for 14 hours straight is tough.
