    • True! And also, ‘a blue dot’. Remember how he earth looks in the universe as captured on the Hubble telescope some years ago? If our planet is a mere dot in the spheres, as it struck me, how small then are we? The thought completely changed my view of my own self versus the universe since then. I do slip back into giving in to the ‘scourge’ of the ‘id’ sometimes, but given space, I resurface so much more settled at knowing who I am. Thanks again for liking my posts!

  2. Have been enjoying your haiga, hermana, and especially like your “curling leaf” haiga in the new Notes from the Gean!

  3. I’m thrilled to know that you’re loving them, hermana! Thanks to Wrick who led me to discover this now increasing obsession with his haiga-a-day. I seem to write a haiku easier with an image. Yes, that ‘curling leaf’ haiga for Svetlana has been quite a favorite. I’m sure it’s her alluring spirit that’s been doing it. Mil gracias otra vez!

    • Thanks for liking this, Melissa, and hanging it up in your ‘haiku-universe’ among other stars!
