Hi, Marion Clarke. As regards the haiga, maybe you're right as I also think this stone angel is built near a child grave but I'm not sure and will ask the photographer. I used this photo because I think there is nothing more suitable than an angel to represent innocence and purity. the red thing on the statue I think it's rust not blood but not sure, and it may be another thing due to the weather factors. This picture is taken in Lyon, France, I guess. The surprise egg is a chocolate egg with a tiny toy hidden inside, maybe you have another name for this in your country. I may replace the photo but still waiting for others'…

I tried to post this haiga and it appeared for a moment but then disappeared, so I hope it didn’t cause the glitch!

The image is my own, a detail from a painting titled Winter Sunset.
