    a sad scene.

    Jesu Christi I love this. I know I saw its birth on the Group colour thread, but I could read it over and over. Rarely see so much in so few words. 13 syllables… the mass of mediocre ‘haiku’ writers should take a leaf out of your book

    I love this haiku, Victoria. Powerful–that the sunset would pause–if only for a brief moment. Beautiful photo with such fiery orange.

    Victoria—the picture—the words—so calming. So lovely…it reminds me of my first sunset in California…lovely…oh I said that.

    wow – the sunset pausing in honor for one bird’s life and we just keep running and running – no matter what catastrophes happen around us…this is strong victoria


  13. brian says:

    evocative…that the heavens would pause for the life of just one bird…as if there is ‘just one’ anything…each special indeed…i like this…
