  2. Hello!

    I came earlier and could not post my comment. My browser was timing out. I hope it stays this time. I like this haiga. All the elements of this composition sit well together and that song..of course is beautiful!

  9. I love that imagery... the ring on the finger being the bud on the rose, and the band of stars the flowers as they blossom into the song. How unique.. and utterly fascinating!

  11. Very complimentary words and picture - as I once read, the picture definitely is the "fourth line"...very cool.

    1. Hi, Kris! Thanks for visiting my blog. That is a very good statement - the picture definitely is the "fourth line". I should always remind myself of this so that each one of my haiku will not be too close to my photo, but an addition or a leap.

    1. Thank you for noticing the font. You're right! It looks like the words are in a song. I thought it's a happy font that was why I picked it. Also, the font shows three rings. Can you see it? Fun! ;-)
