Hey, I write a LOT of poetry, but have never acrtually postsed here. So here is a Haiku Chain :P.
Bird: with mother wind
Reach not Summits Sky
Before dark storm erupts now
Tonight, thunder barks
Oh, fly below bird
Lightining fears no sad song
So yeah. Chain about a bird I saw trying to fly in a storm.

Ooh, I quite like it! It's just how a haiku (chain) should be I think. They're about nature, making them true haikus and they're abstract in the sense that you didn't really say anything directly, which I like, especially in short poems like haikus because if you make everything obvious, then there's really nothing left for the reader's mind to ponder.
Anyways, I thought they were breathtaking and beautiful, I love the words and phrases you used, they created in vivid images. And I thought the actual subject of the poem, [a bird trying to fly through a storm] was poetic and deep in an of itself!
Ack, sorry if it sounds like I'm like sucking up, but I really enjoyed this piece, it's so rare to find stunning haikus these days! =D
Keep up the good work, you should post more of your work! =D

Jeezy creezy!!! That's a long ballad!!! The one I wrote was only like 2 pages and a half maybe... Ok, so ballads are supposed to be long and all that good stuff... Anyways, I'm looking forward to it! I'm sure it'll be beautiful! =)
