    Short is longer on meaning than people think.

    Short is good enough for me too, smiles ~


  7. Short is underrated! Well said, Sabra. 🙂


  8. Sabra, I know many poets who compose haiku and other short verse, but this choice handful of words was a comment on brevity itself. Very clever, and yes, very Rumi! Thx for visiting my sit, Sabra. Loved your comment. Peace, Amy (PS I was the ‘short one’ in my family. I chose to refer to myself as “concentrated,” ha ha ha.)

      So appreciate your comment, Amy. I always enjoy my visits to your blog. I am the short one in my family, too. I like “concentrated” for words and height. Makes for a powerful essence. 🙂 I also love great haiku. My favorites are written by Issa. I particularly like Hass’s translation of Issa’s work. Thanks for visiting, Amy!


  9. wonderful.. why should we be loquacious when we can say it short.
