Lovely. Curious about the goddess, Kannon. Is she also known as Kwan Yin? Forgive my spelling, if incorrect.

What a wonderful haiku, and very aural, with an emotive lead-in first line.

The first line lets us be delightfully surprised by where the phrase leads us.

Two really wonderful haiku making me feel very spoilt in a good way.

warm regards,

I particularly like the first haiku. I get a deep feeling connectivity between myself and the Other. I am a stranger, yet never a stranger.

Hubert ... I think you have the first two lines of something percoalting in your note:

"I am a stranger,
yet never a stranger ..."

One more line, my friend.
