    What a beauty in your three lines. This Haiku is a brilliant piece of writing reflecting one of the most sensitive emotions of human beings 'Tears.' In the taste of your tears, you have said a lot. Great write my friend and many thanks for your unique precious comments on my poem Mysteries of Human Hairs. Love and best wishes Ravindra......Honesty Gimbo

    Honesty if you are a man as indicated by one of your comments given here.I am so sorry. I thought Honesty was a girls name.Here in England although rarely used it's always feminine.What I said prev stands but I regard you as a poet,not the female version.It doesn't alter from the fact I thought your Haiku was very good and I enjoyed it.Once again sincere apologies. Love June

    Liked your profound Haiku Honesty.As well as loving your words,I hope you don't mind me saying but I love your name.It has a lovely sound to it for a name for a poetess,which you undoubtedly are judging by your words here.I'm glad you enjoyed my bit of fun.A tongue in cheek penned because of some faults with my own body.I like to laugh and I like to love and I show it through my words,depending on my mood.Thank you for your appreciation. Love June

    A very interesting haiku, Honesty. Your last name looks Japanese or something. Where are you from? LUv, Andrea

    I can see how you earned the name "Honesty." That is a wonderful quality in your writing. Excellent haiku! Love, Carolyn

    Smile ~ A seemingly very deep emotion expressed here my dear friend; always a blessing to find such treasures of depth ~ And "Yes," the sky does cry many tears for countless precious lives within this place We live although, I Always try to keep my visions beyond its passing moments &, to the promise of "Neverendings Happiness & Love" wherein, no more tears shall Ever be found again!!! ~ ....Cont:)
