wedding news in our haiku family

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 12:17 pm

bridegroom  This past Sunday (Sept. 26, 2004), the New York Times “weddings” page featured three

haiku that recently appeared on this website.  More importantly for friends of Roberta Beary and Frank Stella,

the Times article told the story of their courtship and resulting wedding on September 18th. 


In our guest poet archive, you can find links to postings that feature Roberta, a lawyer-poet who works in

D.C.   Many of her haiku reflect a journey from divorce through nurturing a new trust upon which to build a new marriage.  Congratulations and best wishes to Roberta and Frank (you lucky guy!).


Here are two new haiku/senryu by Roberta Beary:

don't forget tack neg  It’s not too late for Harvest Moon gazing or shooting! (and see Issa’s autumn moon haiku)

    • Among other things, Tom Mighell was kind enough today to point us all to The

      Onion Election 2004 webpage.  We need it.  Need I say more?

    • Acronymously Limited Media?  Robert Ambrogi tells us that American Lawyer Media 

      will officially change its name to — drum roll — “ALM “on October 1st.   I can’t tell you how

      much we need another bland, meaningless acronym.  Surely, it represents the pulsing

      creativity and integrity of panoply of ALM publications and services.  Check here for

      other meanings of the ALM acronym (I like “a la mode” and “application Loadable Module”).

    • Dear Political Fundraisers of All Stripes:  Please read Prof. Bainbridge‘s online missive (Sept. 29) to the National Republican Senatorial Committee and draw the proper conclusions and analogies to your own tactics.  Also, stop trying to fool me with addressing script that looks like handwriting, and offering me credit cards from companies famous for ripping off folks who have poor credit.  ‘Nough said (I wish).
