This has been my favorite Wednesday haiku this year, wonderful!

It's rare that the contemporary haiku match Issa's verse, but this time I feel they have.

Fantastic trio of poems.

warm regards,


Patrick Sweeney said...

Very powerful haiku.

Patrick ... Thank you ... fine work, indeed. Don

Very beautiful these shadows we bear and carry along - loved all three of these poems. A bow to the poets once again.

Mary ... glad these poems clicked for you and so many. We are blessed with poets, old and new. Don
