    Out of the blue
    the wind changes its direction-
    no fragrance

    Zambito's haiku may be one of the greatest haiku's I have ever read. I have no other words that could sound my praise. A rousing well done!

    Jinkies! The fact that written words in a particular order can be construed into vigorous thought baffles me. Experiencing this voyage among your sea of letters has placed me in awe. Thank you for this life altering encounter. God Bless...

    A delight for the senses! The sound of the lawn mower buzzes in my ears. I feel giddy and childlike at the thought of lying down on green blades and having the delicate petals bury me with fragrance!

    clear blue skies
    absent swirling clouds -

    migrating ducks swerve
