Chen-ou Liu & Daryl Nielsen: Wednesday Haiku, #215

the river
swollen with spring ...
her stretchmarks

Chen-ou Liu





honeysuckle
through an open window
mother’s last breath

Daryl Nielsen






high noon--
the reed thrush sings
to a silent river

It seems to me that the deep value of poetry,art in any form, is to move the reader with its beauty. All of these haiku have done this for me today. Just wonderful. Thanks to Don once again for putting them together - you've matched them beautifully.
