Lovely Haiku!It's nice to meet you and visit your blog. I love the name and the photo in your header is magnificent. Hugs and blessings,
Very nice and I sure can relate to that!

I am enjoying everyone's Haiku Poems today Helen, your's is perfect and so true :-) Kathy.
I love your poem and I agree, it is wistful. Good word!
Helen, I dont know that I have the talent for this, yours is lovely and thoughtful.
We had so much fun learnig about Haiku in Poetry class in high school. I loved playing with those few words (and I am not a person of few words!!) to say something eloquently. I can relate to your Haiku very much so. Thank you Helen!xoxoJane
Lovely!!! SO TRUE!!!XOXOCathy
Wonderful Haiku, Helen!!
So true ....and a beautifully expressed - Haiku!
So true, if only it wasn't!
Hi Helen~ Thank you for the kind comment on my blog. I am down to 3 days a week at my job and only work 5 hrs. per day. Thank goodness it hasn't affected my crafting ability or I'd probably lose my mind:) I've never heard of haiku, sounds interesting! Hope you have a lovely day:)
Applause for you! I believe you have done brilliantly!
Great job! I like it a lot. laurie

Hi Helen! I love Haiku! I used to write a lot in high school! I loved yours... Its fun isn't it?~Really Rainey~
Love it and how true!!! Hugs French
This flows really well in perfect structure! Haiku is one of my very favorite forms of poetry :-)
hop to it bunnyalone on a linen topthe rabbit he's yoursso ... that's how you say 'you won the bunny brooch in haiku. email me a postal address and he'll be hopping off to you (he doesn't rhyme though!)
That is a try? My goodness, it is beautifully stated and I love the simplistic truth of it. I say you do this more often!
I think that is a great Haiku. It seems incredible that it's your first! Well done, indeed.
Hi Helen, As you I'm fond of haikus and read and write these small poems (in french) for a long time now. I love Basho, Buson, Issa, Soseki....
Very beautiful. I wrote poetry for years - but mine were more story poems ..lots about my Fathers patients and life experiences that touched me.
This is great! When everything seemed simple, oh yes.
Oh, Helen...love your Haiku...it fits my post today! :-) Yep, Miss Joy has seen the mural and even played Nintendo in that room many a time! Wonder if she'll shoot me for telling that. (Hee, Hee) :-)
I love this Helen..a wonderful poem, xv.

When was that???This is your first ever haiku? We should celebrate!Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! xoxoxxo
I'm closing my eyes, and dreaming of young mango leaves and Saturday mornings in the river... Yum.
I'm dreaming of my life between the ages of 20 and 23. I repeated the dream at ages 36 and 39. 36 was a little tough because I was financially restrained. First year at 36 my '62 VW even stranded me in Wharton, Texas. Very humiliating getting it towed back home where I could fix it (the engine sucked up a valve which ruined a piston. I replaced them myself.). I soon replaced the VW with a TBird and a medium sized Honda road bike. I had longer hair but a good job at NASA. Both times I was harassed some by the police. Remember that 'young lives' matter also, they still lead a hard life, ask my daughter when she was single...
Oh this makes me sad to see Dave King's name there. Time is flying so quickly. Nice to see you in print again. Happy Birthday !:)
Sad sad times...
