What a striking photograph, particularly the gunmetal grey of the water, which seems to match the thoughtfulness of your haiku. Beautiful post.

I always feel at your blog--and I can't say that about so many things in life. I stay sane by often being numb. But never here. Beautiful poem, beautiful photo--maximum in a minimalist way.

the stillness of the waters, the image of the water in its haunting stillness, questioning depth, and the way the leaf floats above in perfect silence, yet seems to dance! Breathtaking!

There it is again ... that invisible hand on my shoulder slowing me down. There is much to ponder here ... think I'll look at it some more. Thanks.

Haiku seems so simple and yet when I try, it sounds awkward.
But yours is beautiful. Your blogis peaceful therapy for me!

I'm so happy to have found this site. Thanks for the very kind comment you left yesterday on mine. However, I must say it's a bit intimidating to receive a compliment from someone like you. I couldn't begin to produce the the beauty you do!
But thanks very much. You're an inspiration!
All the best,
lucyd

This is another powerful example of the beauty of the Haiku form. Given the day I'm having and the rain falling outside as I type this, these words couldn't have been timed any better.
