For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy."
Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama."
Some Basic Things about me:
Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer.
I consider myself "The Astro-Poet."

ah yes, home furnishing haiku! i smell an HGTV show in the making
thank you for your comment. i love that you made your a haiku! very nice.
It is great that this is so short and simple. Symbolic enough too. thanks. K.
have conveyed a lot of emotions with ten words… awesome!
Dear Zongrick: Wow…”no value” isn’t that a very poignantly and pointedly philosophic statement! Excellent Senryu…thank-you!
A touching senryu. A fitting last call for one that gave but now discarded.
Sad how it ended up there isn’t it. The stories it could tell. Lovely senryu
I’d never heard of senryu. Thanks for introducing me to the form, and thanks for visiting my blog.
this blows me away – the photo and the words. the red sofa w/o cushions like an
unfinished life- tho. still passionate against the hard grey wall.
I like it!
love it…so much to say with so few words
How eloquent! The redness of that sofa, the life it once had, now without value. Funny how we give life to things, objects. So much sentiment here in so few words. Bravo, Tammy! I love this!
I love this composition, excellent and very creative, great set of lines, shapes and textures with great color contrast.
Cushions can be replaced?? !
What a sorry looking sofa. Great haiku
Loved this! Like the photo, it said so much with very little, and so well. A perfect response.
The things people take when they leave… very nice. Thank you.
Great photo and wonderful words to go with it.
So, clothes make the man…or woman! Very astute…
