Wow! Stunning image and thought, as always!
Thanks, Alegria. 🙂

I should stop by your blog and leave comments about how much I am liking your haiga these days and especially your haibun-ga (as Lidia Rozmus calls them). I get them in my email (and in my Google Reader) and they always make me happy.
I also imagine this in one breath leaf fall i keep saying no.
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.
Thanks, Andrea. 🙂
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.
Oh, I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say, Sully! Thanks as always for your thoughtfulness.
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
Very nice follow up/haiku by aditya. It really works well with yours Melissa. So much fun all the possibilities!
Thanks aditya for your wonderful expansion on my thought and Andrea for your kind words. 🙂
