    The rhythm of this haiku is very evocative. When I read it, the voice of the poem goes up at the end, as if widening into infinity. All with 6 short words!

    Thank you very much Sheila! This was a bit of an experiment for me in terms of rhythm and word placement. I'm so glad it worked for you…

    I like the succinct choices of word placement here. A fine six-word haiku.

    warm regards,
