    1. Thanks, HA. Was trying to not be 5-7-5 this time since Jane Reichhold didn't always do 5-7-5.

  2. Wonderfully crafted haiku, the first is my favorite. I like the spiritual layers in that first one.

    1. Today I bought a beautiful little monk for my garden. But there was also a stone monk playing a flute. So I wrote about him. Thank you for liking it.
