    Relentlessly chilly–I am shivering with your leafless trees :). Do especially love the mouthfeel of “leafless/trees/ shiver.” Thank you.xox

      Thank you, Chloe. The outside keeps drawing me like I’m hungry for its stillness, its bleakness. It’s a sharp kind of beauty that lets the poet in me feed. A big, big hug to take your shivering away 🙂 xx

    The way you achieve a “tone” is magical! Haiku is only tangentially the number of syllables employed, the use of just the right words in the right order and all the other techniques. “Tone” goes beyond all that and enables us to FEEL what you felt and respond to it in our various ways. Thanks for inviting us into your world, Rachel. I like it there…I just may stay!

      Be lovely if you did! Sometimes they come out right, and sometimes (and maybe because of) – however hard one tries – they never, ever do ❤
