About zongrik

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." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. Thinking I would appear to be so ‘well read’, at 17 I once read War & Peace. It took me three long laborious months after which I could say, I’d read the book but, it’s one that I would never read again. At over 3,000 pages it was just too long and too boring in parts. On the whole, a good story though 🙂
    Nice senryu.

  2. Wonderfully composed Zongrik

  3. Ah, I admire novelists too… I could never hold my attention long enough to do that and my ear for dialogue…. well, I have no ear 😛

  4. I can’t write for so long and for extended periods….very nice set of endurance ~

  5. A thought for the novelist here is apt. What helped Tolstoy to sustain writing such a voluminous book when reading it itself is such a feat!


  6. I know what you mean. I have had four books published… three non-fiction and a poetry chapbook. The notion of a novel still daunts me!

  7. It certainly takes endurance to write a novel. Nice one.

  8. It indeed needs endurance and willpower to write a novel. Really nice set of haiku:)

    Deliberate endurance is how anything, great or small, gets written.

    Poppies Lack Endurance

  10. So true about a fiction novelist.

    Sorry for the late visit. My internet was acting up. Have a great week.

  11. I can imagine this must be true. Nice dedication to novelists. Enjoyed your haiku.

  12. Clever how the second haiku explains the metaphor as being equivalent to a host of untold realizations. Nicely composed!
