A lovely image — and very satisfying on more than one level as well.
Always a sucker for dusk/twilight poems.
autumn twilight . . .

Enjoyed your lovely twilight poem! Thanks for sending us the link to this site. I'm enjoying Kala's fine haiku, also.
a moth follows
in a hole
through birdsong drips

Excellent haiku, Kala. I see it right up there with Basho's "sound of water" haikai.
Thanks a ton for all your lovely comments.
Wow! Jane, thanks a lot.
Martin, Alan and Scott — v. nice response haiku.
Simply beautiful, Kala.
Thanks a ton, Marion :)
Your website is very chatty. It will be useful for all of us. You have done a work. I will come here again to inspect new updates. Thanks for posting.
