845. Buddies

a stone supports
the curled, dried leaf...
mountain path

loved the wry observational power of this
i smiled at the humour - but also saw the path

This is excellent.

And yep, Polona is running around the internet, bringing inspiration.:) I know she inspires me.

Pat: Wow, nicely put...

at the end
a leaf reaches the top --
mountain path

Nice haiku!
And reading it with Polona's photo is as a good talking between good friends.

I wonder how the leaf is managed over there? Still going strong?

Masago said...

Tikkis: Thank you. These poetry blogs have created an international community of friends, haven't they? As for the leaf, yes, I wonder how it is doing. Perhaps Polona can give us an update the next time she is up there.

Just checked Polona's leaf, everything still going strong!

Been a little bit hurry up these days, and seems continuing.

I'm waiting my Xmas holiday, planning to visit my mother-in-law in Portugal, where she is spending his winter time. (She lives in Ilomantsi, eastern Finland.)
But perhaps we are staying here in Turku, and doing just nothing!
