to the ground

Does it fall as fast as a stone? Does it land as hard? I don't know what that means, but it made me think. Love it!!

This haiku is as soft and delicate as the image it portrays Masago. Thank you.

Pat: Ah, deep questions...glad to have spurred the ponder. Thanks.

Floots: Thanks, you've verbalized its character and identified aspects I hadn't considered.

Polona: Thank you.

Bill: Interesting thought. Thanks.

Tim: Thank you, mate!
