Hush of Night

Moon hides behind clouds
       starlight dance beckons to me -- 
                quiet hush of night

    Great imagery, Amy! When I'm at sea fishing 25 miles offshore overnight, I can even see the Milky Way. Thanks for the inspiration to remember the wonderous feeling the stars provide. And thanks for your comments on "Playing Santa to Wall Street." It was obviously born of angst. Love, Carolyn

    I had wanted to tell you that it was 3 days after Mother's day (May 15) for me. A sad coincidence for us both. Thank you again for your caring words, Amy. Love and hugs, Robin

    This is so lovely, Amy! Such brilliant imagery. I am sorry that you had to face that loss. It is tough. I have a daughter too. She is 22 now but she was 15 when it happened and a comfort to me. Thank you for sharing and God bless you always. Love, Robin

    Hi my kindred friend. This haiku is so soft and pretty. I love it! The second line is my favourite. Love your crabby friend with her lion tail swishing, who has decided today to come out of her shell. *^_^*
