Ponds are getting smaller and smaller, luckily clouds are still around, so there is hope !!
who copied whose?
I have been following you all the while, but somewhere on the way, I got lost. Guess I am a simple man and am unable to digest haikus. From what I remember reading Basho and several other japanese Haiku poets, haiku poems always convey one single image, a perfect picture that stays in the reader's mind- and then, it become animated, it become alive and takes you with it on long journeys of introspection and insight. I cannot contain myself in a frame to voice my thoughts; it is a constraint. I am unable to let myself carried away by your haikus; it is probably my incapacity to understand...
Oh no! not at all a constraint....infac even I am learning and can't say whether I have actually followed it compeletely or not...just that I try to put my thoughts....Balanji thanks for following regulalry. :-)
Matsuo Basho reflected on the pond? Keep it up!
