Dear Readers,

Before this month ends, I would like to thank you all for faithfully following my blog. Two years ago, in June 11, 2008, to be exact, I launched this Haiku and Senryu Harvest blog so this marks my second year of blogging.

As you might have noticed, majority of my posts were already published ones and I was just reprinting them here. I am in the process of compiling another book, my second one, and its contents will primarily come from here, so now you have a foretaste of it. Hopefully it will be finished before the end of this year. Wish me luck!

And, by the way, I wish to remind everyone that you are free to submit comments here and I encourage it. I'll try my best to respond to them. Happy second year anniversary to all of us here!

Vic Gendrano

barbecue scent mingles
with children’s laughter
inside their fence
outside, two homeless kids
share a burnt burger

Video messages

On a very personal note, here is a link to my children's video messages shown during my 80th birthday celebration last month. I am truly blessed to have loving children! God bless you, I love you all! - Dad

Ode to my father link

I never can master doing links here. Hope I do it right this time. This may be an old poem but it is still relevant for this coming Father's day. Happy Father's day to all Dads and Granddads! Here's the link:

Father's love

silent and deep
it overflows
Father's love

Her absence

the roses bloom
side by side with weeds
her long long absence

Setting sun

nearing home
the sun starts to set
in my rear-view mirror

again, she pauses
in front of him
in her new sports bra
his eyes remain focused
on his book
