each one is different --
leaning headstones

    Obeservation and reflection in one. Well done, Myron.

    Interesting haiku, Myron, nicely done.

    My compliments to the editor as well, on appropriately (whether or not intentionally), publishing it on the birthday of Edgar Lee Masters, author of "Spoon River Anthology."

    a submissive gathering
    in death
    all now silent

    Hi Ross - thanks for reading this one. it was raining when i wrote it and i got wet and stayed wet for about six hours. i caught a cold for a few weeks but now it's all worth it!

    yes, it's great to see two aussies here in the same week. the haiku scene in Melburne is quietly expanding and we're excited by the form.

    dog's day of summer--
    even the wading white stork
    stands on one leg
