Such wonderful haiku dear Ed. Congratulations! Superb haiga too.
Thanks for sharing Hiruta san.
What a lovely set of haiku you have here. Enjoyed reading and mulling over them.
Lovely set of haiku, Ed.
Enjoyed reading and mulling over them.
Wonderful work, Ed. Well done!
Much enjoyed. The one-line haiku particularly spoke to me: I was just thinking that maybe this year I’ll finally go to D.C. to see cherry blossoms. So many things we miss, and time goes by so fast.
बहुत भावपूर्ण हाइकु धन्यवाद।
