Carry on...

VOTE for your favorite haiku by 11 pm Thursday.

Sparrow wants us all to focus on our STRENGTH
as a country, as individuals in this country, instead
of just whining about the current state of the economy.

I couldn't agree more.

Go. Submit your haiku.
Deadline for entries is 10 pm Wednesday.

my entries:

Determination
to never give up, never
give in. Survival.
*****
One person at a
time. Rebuild what is broken.
We will grow again.
*****
Don't get in my way.
I am working on my life.
Sweat equity wins.

Dang.
Just never did know when to quit.
