    A beautiful verse, Claudette.

    Friendship, like the flowers we stumble across when we aren't really looking, such a delightful encounter.

    Ah, yes, it's amazing who or what can become an impromptu friend without social pressures. Enjoyed this thought provoking haiku.

    Wildflowers and chance friendships, what an apt and beautiful comparison.

    A beautiful ku! The creativeness (Zoko) of the haiku explores the socio-psychological aspects of the man in modern society. Some of my poems with reference to 'wildflowers' are cited below:

    the tenderness of
    your thought

    down the stair

    I collect
    the wild flowers

    that you advise
    blooms in my garden of life

    A lifelong friendship can bloom from a chance meeting in an unusual situation, just like a wildflower that can thrive anywhere.

    Delightful jux.
