Connie, your visit and your gracious comments are delightful. Thank you for sharing your lovely thoughts with me, both you and Paul are so kind in your assessment of my haiku.. I would love to see it paired with a beautiful Japanese painting to make a haiga, but I'm not skilled at the art of calligraphy nor this style of painting. Your presence here is treasured always, my friend. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

Thank you, my dearest friend, for sharing your most lovely thoughts with me. It is my wonderful pleasure to be greeted by your shining presence here, Paul. Yes, the Japanese style of haiga is beautiful and your idea warms my heart - now, where are my brushes? It's been a long time since I've used them! :)) Warmest wishes and hugs always.. ~Susan

A dear friend of mine told me I should read more haiku by Susan Ashley (oh, wait, it was you!) I'm glad you did, because this is stunning. Mother nature providing sustenance for her children is a beautiful image, combined with a brief nod to how quickly youth passes us by. I encourage a read of Emily Dickinson's "Nature the Gentlest Mother Is". Your poetry never ceases to dazzle me, my friend. Many blessings to you! Hugs ~ John

My dear friend, I'm so glad you followed your good friend's advice! :)) Your insightful comments fill my heart to brim with elation. I appreciate your golden presence here immensely and also your recommended reading of "Nature the Gentlest Mother Is" - Emily Dickinson was such a nature lover and I relished reading every word. She loved New England's landscapes and seasons as much as I do. Thank you, John, you truly are a wonderful poetry friend. Warmest wishes always.. ~Susan
