    Susan – have long appreciated your work . "Wedgwood" is a favorite as it brings fond memories of my own mother…

    Lovely! And I return often to your World Haiku award "falling leaves/how will I know/my time has come.

    Excellent poem.

  4. Susan Says:

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. I really appreciate hearing from each of you. Delighted todiscover that you recall some other haiku of mine, as well. That's very rewarding. Susan

    Beautiful poem, Susan. And beautifully executed.

    I particularly like how the horizontal structure of this work matches the march of time. And how through your absence of punctuation you create a sense of deliberate ambiguity, to match the existential musings which I read as the heart of the poem.

    Many thanks for sharing it with us.

    I love the sound of this one, Susan. It feels 'determined', somehow. This might be someone making a new start after a relationship has ended.

    More thanks! Glad that 'wedgwood' works for you, T. Johnson.

    I appreciate your comments, Strider. Ambiguous, yes, so glad you like it.

    Thanks for sharing your interpretation, Marion! I'm happy this one is working for you.
