    There is such simple beauty and painful honesty in your haiku, Lesley Ann – the cactus is blossoming yet I can still feel the presence/pain of its needles. And I really like the repetition of 'O' through the haiku as well – it shapes the mouth into an expression of 'oh' which is perhaps how we feel when we're hoping for comfort and relief. So lovely.

  7. Lesley Says:

    thanks Lynne!
    and to all of you — happy it resonated.

  8. Christy Olson Says:

    We have so many “hope blossoms” here and in every color! Glad Lynne pointed out the “o” repetition. Miss you. clo

    Ginny of our Haiku Workshop sent us this. Today i read about the concern about Saguaro cacti being covered with blossoms. Fears of a sign of stress.Has this informed your haiku?Thanks for this Annie, Denver CO
