Dear Anne-Lise: Thanks for your support. Yes, haikus can be very challenging to write. To me, I sit back and let the feeling heart hurl such outbursts and let the words come. I normally pen about 11 or more pieces in one sitting. I write whatever comes to mind. When I finish, I will then edit and smoothen each fragment. Just to share with you how haikus arrive. Each one has an inner glow. Leon

Hi Leon! Allow me to be the first to comment positively on this beautiful set of haiku. I love reading each one and stopping to think over it...there are always hidden meanings that the mind looks for. I enjoy the exercise! cu my friend. // paul
