Love the Issa, of course

one of the things i like about Susan Diridoni's haiku is that it feels like it belongs to each of us (me as i read/see it and the visual scent soaks through the words)

Thanks, Charles.

Wrick, a fine compliment, I'll make sure to pass it on to Susan.

Susan, The choice of your words at this time when the memories of grandmother's peonies and my greatgrandmother's roses mingle in my garden giving flesh to ancestral mists of time. Simply wonderful. Many thanks, Merrill
