You're first paragraph is a wonderful lead-in or introduction to the first Haiku stanza. I didn't find many problems with this piece, b...



If interested, link me to your portfolio and/or write me a note with various "thumbs" which represent your work.  If I prefer your style, I will contact you, and we will work together to make a verifiable contractual agreement from that point which will result in an amazing book. :D   
Interesting. A status update. I'm not sure how I feel about this on dA.  What are your thoughts?
Seeds cling to the Goldenrod,
and its honey-hair descends.
A beautiful cancer,
and its seeds have gone
black to become green.

First, I don't want anyone to worry.  Hold your breath. Count to'll be ok. :D Yeah - you would totally die if you did that.  Anyway, I am receiving all of your wonderful comments.  I am definitely still writing.  Unfortunately, I just had to complete a 25 page paper for one of my master classes, so that took some precedence, my darlings. I will respond to your comments tomorrow - most likely.  And I'll start putting up more work (which includes another tutorial). 

So, there you have it. I'm quite busy and moderately masochistic because of it.  :D
