in morning mist
no longer alone

  1. I love these haiku very much. That first one is so fragile and yet a strong flower.

    1. Thank you, Kristjaan. The poppies and wisteria were in bloom when I vacationed in Italy. So memorable.

  4. I love the thought of awakening and and realising you're no longer being alone. But then your second is a delight to Grace, thank you :)

    1. :) Yes, I love every day waking up not alone. Am sort of a newlywed but we've been together almost 12 years now.

    1. Italy/Tuscany was the first time my husband and I were together longer than three days at a time. I knew it would make or break the relationship. It was a magical time.
