Intrigued by the botanical aspects but of course haikus never tell all

Hi Andrew, I like your haiku, so many ways to see the beauty of the flower.

Ha, ha, a funny haiku flower, now there’s a novelty. And talking about the child within, never lose that voice, it keeps us grounded, don’t you think?

Hi Andrew – I enjoyed writing out your Haiku – please keep writing, and submit more! Forgive my messy script, I am still learning to keep the digital pen steady. Handwriting is my passion, although I consider myself a novice. I volunteered to produce handwriting for the Voice club, so I would be forced to practice and improve daily – haha 🙂
谢谢 (thanks) – 文龙

A beautiful tribute to a beautiful flower with an unfortunate name. It’s a very rich man who can appreciate such beauty and express it in so few words. Well done, Andrew!

Yes, I agree Sandra, the ability to express in so few words is a true gift 🙂

I’m a huge fan of FFF, too, Andrew! Especially the comments, as with Voice Club. It’s great encouragement to know one of your stories or poems has touched someone and you’ve managed to convey your thoughts and feelings to others. You are so right in that encouraging words go a zillion miles! There’s nothing more inspiring 🙂

Hi Andrew, thanks for your recent comment on my “Medicine Garden” Haiku. Yes you are right, the Voice.club platform offers subtle advantages that take time to sink in. I also agree with you about our new Haiku portal when you said: “it made me realize how Voice Club is a kind of Medicine Garden” 🙂

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
