I love this haiku. I read it earlier before the contest was judged, and loved it then. I love it more now. Especially your second line. Congratulations on your winning placement in the contest. Very deserved. Love, Deb

Beautiful John, I had two and this describes the process so well, the pain leaves once that wail is heard, such joy.

Very creative, John. I think Charles wants a total of 15 syllables in his haiku entries. I wouldn't want you to miss out, so you might want to review his rules. I really like the concept here. Best to you, Diane
