    1. Thank you very much. I agree with you about which is the strongest haiku – I wrote the first one to set the scene for the second one. I didn’t want to go into a whole lot of detail in a haibun so experimented with doing it this way.

  1. Very nicely philosophical, almost whispered. Suzanne. I sent the link for my book sometime ago then sent an email asking if you received later. I have now discovered through someone else that my email – is accessible, and I can even send emails, but they do not go, and anyone trying to reach me there gets an email bouncing back. My sincere apologies. I will send the link by my new email today.

    1. Computers – bah humbug – can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em! I’ve been off line for weeks due to a major computer crash. I have a new one now but still have to retrieve a lot of images and book manuscripts off my old one.
      I completely understand about your trouble sending emails. I’ll look out for your book. I’m really looking forward to reading it.
      Thanks for your kind thoughts on my haiku. I’m finding it hard to get back into writing them – I’m out of practice.

        1. I gave up on the library. It was too busy and not conducive to doing anything other than checking emails. I purchased a new computer and am back blogging again in the privacy of my own home 🙂 Thanks so much for your support. I really appreciate it.

  2. I find this very thought provoking, Suzanne, how we take the time to be and listen within…finally when all is quiet. I find haiku gives us that opportunity as well. Now if only I could travel by such waters as you portray her…ahhhh!!

    1. Yes I agree about haiku creating a space where we can really focus. I spent ages searching for the last line on this one. I really had to quiet the mind to find it. Maybe you can have a summer holiday by the sea or by a river. I hope so.

        1. Yes, I agree about writing haiku. My mind is a blank more often than not right now. I think I need a rest. 🙂 Key West sounds like an amazing place to take a holiday. I’ll be fascinated to read your haiku from there – or maybe you’ll get too laid back to write.

            1. Sorry to hear you have been sick. I hope you get a holiday after all. You sound like it would do you a lot of good after that freezing winter.

    1. I’ll look out for your poem. Life does feel very strange at present – something is unfolding but just what it is still unclear. It feels good in a whirlwind kind of way 🙂

Please comment. I love knowing what you think.
