  2. This is the first time I've really read any haiku and I think it's lovely - so lean and wistful.

    1. Lizy, Haiku did that to me too, the first time I read it. Then I started writing it... it's kind of magickal to see such strict constraints come to life. I enjoy those types of word challenges.

    1. I have (counting in her head) I think 18 varieties of tall bearded Iris in the yard now, one of my favorites is the black... and the blue and white (called "Over Alaska") ... but I could probably have a plantation... and then some and never tire of their beautiful blooms.

  7. Irises have such class, don't they? I always think of a tall, slim, silver haired teacher in a lavender colored twinset.
