Thank you to the One Hundred(s)

Dear One Hundred Friend(s)
This haiku is just for you
Thank you very much

It’s actually quite difficult keeping track of follower numbers as the WordPress counter doesn’t appear to register non-WordPress account holders who follow by email. It occurred to me that I may have already passed the One Hundred mark but no matter. What is important is the support and encouragement we offer each other on a daily basis, both as writers and fellow human beings, often treading the same precarious path between light and dark, day and night, right and wrong.

So for the purpose of this little milestone, I dedicate the above haiku to two people:

Firstly, my Twitter friend @jillcdalin – I used to have a Twitter account but never used it much. A couple of months ago I decided to delete it and start again and since then have found some wonderfully talented and kind writing friends. I didn’t know what to expect of myself when I rejoined. I’m not one for self-publicising excessively, preferring in part to share my writing rather than only offering it up to journals and competitions. But Twitter, with its limited word count, offers the perfect habitat for haiku and micropoetry and the perfect conditions to spark exchanges between Twitter friends. Long may that continue. If you fancy a twitter come find me @ColinHillWriter

Secondly, to Eunoia Review who hit the follow button at about the same time and by coincidence today published a poem by my good friend and poet Paul Waring

Thank you both and thank you to the previous 99 or so followers of my humble blog. I raise a glass of herbal tea and drink a toast to you all. Here’s to the next One Hundred!

Best wishes,

Colin.
