I've found no words to speak of Haiti, for it's bigger than my comprehension will reach.

You have found the right thing to say.

Beautiful!

Malcolm, I agree with you. Even now, having written the poem already, I find myself searching for words.

Nevine, thanks. Coming from you, that's high praise indeed.

Amen to that. Beautiful and inspiring.

Greetings from London.

PS: Word verification, 'halitian'. It's in moments like this that my atheism is put to the test.

We are all sending monetary aid to Haiti. How wonderful to dedicate a haiku too. These are hard times, but it's good to see people care.

I noted A Cuban in London below; I'm a big fan of his blog. We must have connected through him. So nice to meet you!
