aloha Susan. i've sat with your haiku for a week (i see that as a good thing because it stayed with me). it was elusive in my initial readings of it. elusive yet it wouldnt quite let go of me or i of it. what i find as i read it now, is that i feel the sense in it as much as follow the words (both but feeling it works well for me through the visualization of it, which the words now trigger). i like that. it's familiar, yet each time i read it, it's new too - just like the brimming red west, every day, new. cool on that. aloha.

Thank you very much for sharing your wonder full article. I've taught a few introduction to haiku sessions for lifelong learners and always begin with a dozen haiku by Issa.

4 of them were among the ones you mentioned. A beautiful "coincidence."

I will be passing your link on to other haiku lovers via the blog. I appreciate your sending it and I do hope the your progress up Mt. Fuji continues apace.
