    Beautifully calming – just what's needed on a bleak autumn day.

    Hi, Claudette, Your lovely haiku brought to mind a photo of a frog a friend just sent, sitting by the rippling water…so fat and content. These last days have been such a whirlwind that your haiku does indeed bring a spot of gentle calm into my evening. Happy Thanksgiving…. Merrill

    Actually, the photo is by David H. Miller and it is stunning. If you look back to the intro to this issue, you'll find a link to his website by clicking on his name.

    That photo gives a mirage quality to the haiku… a very interesting combination indeed!
