Haiku 47




         chalk white tombs 
         groundwater rising
         New Orleans




         * A contemplation on environmental degredation.

    Deep Imagery. I've been to New Orleans, and it's sits there that all. Jack, thank you for all the nice and lovely visits in the past. After seeing and hearing the things that go on in this world, gives me reason to pray and never take my true poet friends for granted. Enjoy the greatest people and things in life. Have yourself a wonderful and lovely Mother's Day. Lots of Luv & Hugs *LINDA

    Thanks, Linda. I've only been on the soup for a few months, but I too feel I have made good friends, around the world even. I truly appreciate all the support you have given me. My Mother's Day is cooking asparagus and shrimp risotto for the two mothers I'm close to. A happy and good day to you as well... Jack
