Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I write Haikus and am intrigued with how the meaning of a phrases can be changed by rearranging the placement of one word.Very similar to adding or erasing a line in a drawing—the same but different.

I like haiku too - though I think I am better suited to Haibun.

So - this is my most recent (almost) Haiku. (I know the syllable count is not quite right - but of course what the right number of syllable is is a whole separate discussion). 

"Bees in my roof,

the ceiling throbs,


In a prose explanation, I could explain that there literally is honey oozing from my ceiling - and that sometimes I find bee larvae on my pillow - and that I get stung by wayward bees about twice a night - all as a result of the renegade bees which have made a nest in my roof! Compounding it all is the fact that I attended a bee keeping course, and set out to 'catch' a wild swarm - which seem to have been deliberately laughing in my face by settling not in their prepared designated, propolis smeared spot, but.,..in my roof above my bed!

If you would like to exchange mail art - please send me your address! If you like, we could 'alter' each other's images and return them.

Earthling, this is the last but certainly not the least welcome message to IUOMA you receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. When you joined IUOMA on October 30 I was unable to welcome you on board.  At the time I was in a Celestial Journey far beyond the Milky Way. Now, back to planet Earth, I´d love to be the other end when you decide it’s the right time to start trading snail mail art. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe

Terrene Embassy

Republik van Patland

Caixa Postal 24827




I look forward to see a piece of yours in our terrene mailbox. I will do my homework after receiving yours. This is nothing less than a Celestial Promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.
