    Oh yes it's a great poem.Before poetry by its ancient greek meaning even exixting things, since they were not percieved by other rational creatures to give theem a name, we can say they were existing.Existance for whom For the Vaquum? Existance not percieved by mind is still existance? (Report) Reply

    Before Brian SENRYU

    Before Brian Came
    Haikus were mostly the same
    Now there’s more vowels!

    Wow! awesome haiku, Brian. How miniature is any our activity contrasting the whole life, and the life in face of physical universe. Yet, poetry is joining it all.. even giving a soul! (Report) Reply
