Great job, I have only attempted 1 Haiku, they are very difficult, (to me anyway). Another gem, well done.

Thanks for placing me in your lovely contest, Andrea. Pleased, you liked it so.

Had to think about this one, Tim, but got it on the second reading. Of course I would have preferred something far more substantial in my hat than rain drops! Thanks for liking my Birches poems, it's an early work which I edited a little a few weeks ago. One of my favorites. Always appreciate your comments. / M

You have made my day, Anand ... such lovely feedback brings my spirits back up and gives me a further boost to write some more. Yes, it is the small things in life, that become the BIG things. Perhaps that is why I am continually drawn to haiku ...
