I haul up a bucket
filled with summer

    Dear Sanjuktaa,

    Wonderful haiku.

    hosta flowers
    begin to end
    yet knowing
    their leaves
    will turn gold

    Beauty of language depicting a grim reality. The well is dry and summer is hot. And the bucket . . . I find this quite startling. Congratulations.
