  1. Dear Kitty,
    How wonderfully kind you are to link to my Mars Maven Haiku. I’ve been writing haiku since I was a kid, and had a map of Mars up on my bedroom wall too. It would be wonderful to get one up in space, and I appreciate this more than you know. :0)

      All the best for you and your poetry!
