Isn't she nice? I was flying high (really!) when I wrote this somewhere over Georgia I would imagine.

Good Morning L Milton - The imagery is lovely. The voice and tone are true to the haiku form. I have much respect for all of you who master this unique format. Thank you for sharing. Enjoy poetry soup.
