As far as haiku poetry is concerned, I consider this one perfection, Rachael. I can’t imagine a single way in which it could be improved. Just lovely. And what gorgeous artwork to accompany it.
Thank you! The first line broke the five syllable rule as many haiku do these days. I battled with it, but in the end decided the brevity of the first line worked. One can carry on tinkering ad infinitum 🙂
