Miss you being around the: Miss you being around the site but I fully understand.  If the muse is taking you in a different direction then that's what you need to do.  I fully respect and support any decision you make.  Glad to know you still read a few of my pieces and I'm sure Ssmoothie feels the same way.

Oh, Remarkable!: In rhyming lines piled with sheer confidence, a knack for talent makes Homeward beam bright. Your poem is a strong, convincing testimony of the hereafter sculpted with astonishing beauty.

Writer's Dilemma: . The arguments of the day vs the beauty of being alive, the demographic shifts that change debate-power weights, attempts to define aesthetic, value pushing - there is room for it all, often unfortunately. The usa form of government as an experiment? Results not always what is expected. The statues are coming dowm in my lifetime. It has to all be articulated - time, excceptionally long or short, will declare a winner. Like all men and equality adding everybody besides white plantation owners, et al, rises to meet the accepted value; makes it real. We write, what we write evolves.

Wow!  Excellent use of the: Wow!  Excellent use of the form.  There are some purists (and I am not one of them) who suggest that the Haiku should be strictly about nature with no human value or thought attached to it, simply a response to a moment of observation of some phenomenon of nature.  I disagree.  Human nature is as appropriate to the form, as you so skillfully prove here, as any other nature.  I applaud these Haiku you have written that push the envelope of the form a little further, while also expressing some genuine human observations about ourselves.  Bravo!!!

I regret not being able to: I regret not being able to read all of your posts. A combination of physical malaise and a preoccupation with the business of living keeps me stranded in "real" life, but I'm certainly glad I took the time to enjoy this.    You added quite a bit of charm and authenticity to the college student's notes by replicating your former, evolving style. But the first half was far from mundane! You swooped right into some elating, astronomical reveries that explode with both metaphorical images and insights into our very existence. Amazing!    The metered half brought us gracefully down to Earth only to be rocketed back to a realm of cosmic splendor of a different order.    My praise to the author and his inspiration, Sundial.

This must be the holy grail: This must be the holy grail (or something close to it) of erotic metaphors, brimming with the ambrosial radiance of that "achieved completeness". Perfection.

A precise hit on the subject: A precise hit on the subject of objectivity and a sharp analysis of Ssmoothie's intelligent expression.    "Objectivity is an orphan, asking anyone to be its  beloved. Self-articulate, a mind rebels; imaginate and fickle, clarity is a victim"    Such eloquent insight! And:   "The realm of originality is dangerous terrain like some Che looking for a Fidel. The truth is a lie."   A stunning declaration of sad, but indisputable reality. Impressive work.

It takes empathy and evolved: It takes empathy and evolved reasoning to stand at the summit; to see above the mire of so many narrow perspectives and gullible minds battling it out below; to see both sides with sometimes painful objectively. That's no small task!    You see the urgency and said it so well: "Are they not also human?" Words of great importance.

Absolutely! Words can heal or: Absolutely! Words can heal or they can lead us over a cliff or they can tear down the whole facade as yours have. Well said!
