    Two beautiful elements and two beautiful beings, both needing each other, taking and giving eternally!!! Fabulous, brilliant Haiku, Joy.... Blessings to you and David, always! Thank you for your love and kindness! Much love, Audrey

    Very, very, Impressed here. What a blend.. But no one answered my question... Really and honestly i love this haiku. Me and Nathan, who i meet here on the soup describes ourselves,, as the moon and the ocean.. and once we described our selves as the desert and water,, which rain is the same... Love it joy,, adding it to my favorites,, along with you,, Love this Haiku,, small word say a lot, and David, on the bottom sure has a way with words,, have a blessed day,..p.d.

    Hi Joy.This is a beautiful Haiku,signifying love between two people.I love the images you have used.But of course you can put a different slant on it and see it as spiritual love.So much meaning to be read in so few words.I find this clever,it gives the reader what they need from it.I love it.It satisfies my spirit and my human heart.Love June(Sylvia)
