Summing up the year (2014)

the sound of surf

(Shiki kukai, december.2014)

...And with that, I end my abysmal run in the kukai contests this year. Even apart from the kukais, 2014 has been a disappointing year poetrywise.There has been the odd publication here and there, but by and large I've suffered from an inability to find the words I want to write and been too self-critical even when I wrote, and,...well, nothing has gone well really. I have the feeling that  things could only get better from here.

 Otherwise, I just might have to turn to writing "erasure" poems...that seems to be the hottest thing  around lately :-)

Wish you all the very best for the new year~
