Marvellous haiku, it has a certain sense of mystery and intrigue..."as ancient as time itself" - beautiful, resounding line.

As if to infer the watering can as the earth in our hands.... This stirs my imagination!

NEVER would my unimaginative brain thought to put up my own Magpie picture. And then say SO much in such brevity.

Haiku has to be "just right"...and yours IS!

Thanks for visiting me.

Dear Sue: This is so zen-like and pure; there is a feel of great spiritual refreshment!

PattiKen said...

Perfect. I love the many forms you are using. You express so much in so few words. I feel like i am in a tea garden with music tinkling nearby as I read them.

There are few things I love more than to be transported into history via an unexpected image.

Teresa O said...

I'm simply amazed at how spot on those who write Haiku are. Within so few words lie a description, a story.

Thank you for your kind comments on Writing in Amazement.

Have a grand day!
