The people that can write great haikus on this site are astounding. They dwarf me in their execution. You are one of them. I don't think that I will ever master that form. You have. Thanks for your kindness on my win. I am humbled. Regartds, Gerard.

Beautiful poetry, Sean. My daffodils have emerged ready to conduct... I hope they do so before another freeze. Last year they didn't bloom. And they are so very lovely when in blossom... like your Haiku #34, which blossoms with your talent. Smiles, Dane Ann
