A fine tribute to a fine man. Thanks for sharing this Curtis.
I love this tribute to Mike. He would have appreciated it. It's down to earth and highly respectful, and delivered beautifully.I second every single word you said, thanks Curtis.As Mike was a cowboy, here's one about a few days trip I took in Australian farm country:woodfireflickering in the silencecorralled horsesAlan SummersModern Haiku (Fall 1995 vol. xxvi no. 3)I hope a publisher sees your tribute and realises that a posthumous collection would be a wonderful gift to his family, and to all of us who respected Mike, and respect fine haiku, and fine whisky too of course. ;-)Alan
And this is one helluva tribute. I knew Mike pretty well a few years back and he was a great man and cowboy poet.Kirsty
You chose the splash of JD. A man's choice. A good one. Your wonderful haiku and the vid are an impressive tribute. Your haiku... the way all living things go, our importance, put into three litttle lines. Thank youGabriele
I'm a stranger to Mike and this online community of the living and the dead, but for a brief moment the world is a better place. I drink whiskey where the Piscataqua rushes toward the Atlantic, and this tribute will stay.
Curtis,A great nod to a fellow poet -- and a cowboy poet at that. I will seek Mike Farley out to meet him for myself through his poems. Thanks for the introduction.--Peter
Thanks, Curtis, for a fine tribute.
