Hello Carrie, my first thought was your comment to Fuji about feeling nervous, so please let me just say that you have nothing at all to feel nervous about. If you look a little deeper as to why we write, it’s because we feel the need to express what we feel, and to share it. And we should never ever let the inner doubt surface.
I know every member sees The Voice.club as family based,so why feel nervous among friends?
Thank you for the Christmas Haiku – it is a wonderful piece of poetry. Thought provoking (Yes, Life Endures) Thank you Carrie – and a very Happy Christmas to you and all your loved ones.

Hi Carrie – I understand what you said above about being “a little nervous” 🙂 Now I study handwriting, so I volunteered for the Voice.club to write these Haiku. I also get a bit nervous trying to scribe using a “digital pen”, but as Eric said, we are a family friendly club among friends. Using the apple pen is not as accurate as authentic pen and paper, so please forgive my messy script. My passion is to promote handwriting script, because I feel sometimes the things we lose, we miss the most later on. I truly enjoyed writing out your Haiku, a very inspiring gift for Christmas eve.

A late Christmas present.Thank you, Carrie. Just found this one now and you definitely have a gift for poetry. Haiku is such an interesting form and for your first attempt, you have the key elements: present tense, focus, simplicity, objectivity, an allusion to nature, juxtaposition (in the final line where life endures), and you captured the essence of the moment. Basically, you nailed it  ? . That’s amazing. Also, I had never heard the word ‘viridian’ before, and it has a pleasant sound so, thanks for a new word, as well  ? .

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

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that 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!
