[another] haiku from Haiku Andy!

A little more than a year ago, I received my first haiku, sent by Haiku Andy.

Yesterday I had the joy of receiving another one!

Haiku Andy creates a haiku each day and mails it to an address he picks randomly from his hat of friends.

As he states in the back of each postcard:

Every day, I write a haiku and publish it via social media.
Every day, I physically inscribe that same haiku on a single postcard and mail it to someone in the world.
Today, that someone is you.

So, here is ‘my’ haiku!

Enjoy this haiku and please do visit his blog for more, here

and congratulate him for being featured at Litquake 2014’s Off The Richter Scale.

    The haiku is lovely. I like that you photographed it in two locations. It fits the poem.

  2. I know some people–used to be friends but no longer–who would say the ocean’s color is the exact opposite of whatever I would say. You understand why they are no longer friends.

  3. Ah, such a simple yet complex question. It’s all about the observation, isn’t it:)
