The first haiku is very philosophical - the use of the word "perceptive" works well with your theme of enlightenment. With perception, it allows one to discover those "zestful garden[s]" that are just around the corner waiting. The use of "zestful" and "tantra" really give this piece a Buddhist, peaceful feel. I am very impressed. "Tantra and morality" - hand in hand, perhaps both can produce oneness of mind and true enlightenment. I am intrigued by the "mocking the land" line.Always, Laura

The last line in the second haiku is excellent! Keep at it and damn the critic's torpedos. Matthew Anish
