    Thank you, Jeff. Your comments mean so much to me. My favorite season was summer, but for the last few years it has been spring. I love all the winds seasons..each make me pause and feel alive and rich.

    This is a beautiful haiku Dawn. As the other readers have commented, such lightness of touch, such sensuality of encounter is brought to mind. I feel a whirl of connotation, like a breeze flitting among the buds.

    There may have been a particular person in mind for whom the poem was written, but your use of the word "you" sends a tingle down my spine. You have stepped out of your self when you wrote this, but have taken on the persona of the goddess of spring, and are bestowing the blessing of the season on me too. Thank you

    Thank you! I love your comments!!!
    The most wind ravishing experiences I have had, have been on the beach. I don't go often anymore, but still relish the memories of delicious warm wind all over my skin.
    I wrote this haiku about a year ago. It is one of my favorites. I am so happy it is published. ♥ to u.
