I get them in my email (and in my Google Reader) and they always make me happy. Reply Wonderful Melissa! I also imagine this in one breath leaf fall i keep saying no. Reply Yes, I’ve tried it that way, aditya… in the end I like it in this vertical shape because of the association with the meaning, but I know what you mean about the one breath. Reply Very nice. Reply Thanks, Andrea. 🙂 Reply Melissa, I wanted to reply with a complete response to your haiku. I like it a lot. It leads me to several things. But it will take some time for me to get it right. Meanwhile your haiku cycle is moves on. Hopefully I will get something to you. Sully Reply Oh, I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say, Sully! Thanks as always for your thoughtfulness. Reply Yes Melissa I agree with your thoughts on the vertical shape. I was very inspired from your post to write this- the argument we never had leaf fall Reply Very nice follow up/haiku by aditya.
