I realize now that very few people like my haiku anymore, probably because I write too many and folks are bored to death with them, but I do, and that is all that counts.

Je me rends enfin pleinement compte du fait que la plupart des gens n’aime plus mes haikus, peut-être parce-ce qu’à leur avis, j’en écris trop et ils en ont marre. mais moi, je les aime, et c’est tout ce qui compte.
