Annette shared-


I wrote this haiku on a walk along a local riverside trail with my husband Paul. It had recently rained but the sun was out, so the puddles reflected the blue sky. Together for 30 years now, Paul and I are comfortable simply walking quietly side by side. As a contest judge commented, when you’re with your soulmate, there is no need for words.

Oh wow. This.

Lots to think about, the image of the sky in a still puddle has always been one of my favorite images in nature. But connecting it with the jux...very, very deep. I will be carrying this ku around for a while today. Thank you @Vandana!
