all the places
where we touch

    I love the mood: in this haiku there's a sort of melancholy that I like very much… well done!

    Was not a haiku a nature obsevastion? Not comenting in anger has 5-7-5 bit the dust also
    Revisiting the scene? no ofense

    Wonderful ku, Jim – warmly touching (unintended pun but happy with it)

    Wood, I'd classify this as a seasonless haiku, though I know there are varying views on the haiku/senryu distinction in English. As to 5-7-5, the majority of literary haiku in English have been written free-form for a couple of decades now.

    I love the suggestive passion of this one. Delightful!

    (For Wood)

    what is a haiku —
    your wine reflects the moonlight,
    mine doesn't — we drink
