Hi Pandita, I love your style of haiku. They are all of excellent quality. It reminds me of the haiku of the great Japanese masters like Basho, Issa, etc. For myself, the last line in a haiku is the "punch" or "impact" line, that highlights the message of the piece. "Haiku is a finger pointing at the moon; if the hand is bejewelled, we no longer see that to which it points." You are a poet of class! Have a nice day!
