thank you for your encouraging comments. I found this a challenging assignment so I am very glad you like the results.

Haiku is fun but the guidelines for new Haiku are confusing. I first got the book from the library but have ended up using it a lot.

This is as it is suppose to be, one deep breath and renewing, what a song you have sung with your clarity.
