our back and forth
the icicle lengthens
drop by drop

    Grand, Debbi_! So many icicles in our lives.
    __ This, is my humble but complementary echo from… 5 March of 2009, 'twas actually the close of a previous "note-book" haibun.

    one drop lingers
    at winter's last icicle
    a candle flame

    Beautifully portrayed.

    musical whisper
    the icicles soften
    the evening

    drop by drop–
    the stillness of the
    flowing sound
