    What a sad feeling you haiku leaves with me, Melissa. I usually associate the west wind with bringing my love home…as well as fair weather of sparkling days. I must say that it is so exquisitely done … playing upon the echo of romantic poetry… You certainly teach us all a thing or two along the way.

    This is lovely, Melissa – so compact yet limitless in its capacity to make the reader reflect.
