  1. Thanks a lot, Sanjuktaa, for appreciating this one.

  2. Chrissi, I'm glad you like the haiku/haiga "the music of spring / each day / a new song" You're young and I'm old, but I'd like to tell you what I was thinking when I wrote that, three things basically. 1. Each day I would go out, and it seemed I would hear a new bird singing, so each day a new song; 2. Some people, when they see flowers, claim they can hear music, or respond to colors musically, so new flowers, new songs; 3. I was born in the spring, and whenever a new baby is born, that’s a new song, a new singer, the baby. So, “the music of spring (birds, flowers, babies) each day a new song (a new singer is born) A good work of art is complex like this. You don’t have to publish this. I just thought it might interest you. I haven't shared this with everyone. I began writing when I was a teenager, almost 50 yrs ago now. You’re far ahead of where I was. So keep writing, and I’m sure you’ll have great success.

  3. Hi, Ed! Thanks for taking the time to share what you were thinking when you wrote this. It makes me appreciate your work even more.
    I love hearing the birds sing and each day, there's always a new song to enjoy.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I'm honored reading your positive comments. :-)
