It occurs to me
blue orchids are guilty
ragged petals of lake
confess small, tidy details
read into each breath I take

  1. Ever so tender and delicate. Many thanks for such a wonderful haiku.

    And as for confusing me for a woman, never mind, that happens. My son and I went to a bike shop recently to buy a helmet (for my son) and the guy at the counter said to another customer: 'Let me sort out this lady and her daughter and I'll be with you in a second'. The 'lady' and her 'daughter' were my son and I. We both cracked up whilst the guy's face displayed several shades of red. :-)

    Greetings from London.

  3. Dear CubaninLondon,

    That's hilarious! And I'm sure you are
    both very handsome. You have a wonderful
    sensibility, which is what draws me to your
    blog. I don't normally read essay blogs,
    however your blog is important as well as
    enlightning.
    Thank you for the compliment on my haiku.

  7. Dear Dee,

    Orchids do have a distinct personality.
    Each one more beautiful than the next, and
    seem to hold a story within their beauty.
    Thank you.
