    I’ve restored the comment preview feature that this blog once had but that stopped working after a WordPress upgrade. The new comment preview works as the old one did. Your comment displays under the comment entry box as you type it and as it will look after you publish it.

      Thank You, Jonathan.

      It’ll soon be haiku season, I suppose.

      It’s haiku season
      Now, always, and everywhere
      Let’s do it, Dearie

      More terse? It’s inverse?
      No one can know it. It’ll have to show it.

      Past the equinox
      Bright sun and dying tomatoes
      Mark the season.
