common ground


a safe place to land ?
they seek some common ground
sand that does not sink

A good observation both for those in boats and metaphorically for all of us.

"sand that does not sink" where would any of be if we didn't have that? Like air, water and sunlight. A really great haiku.

this is a great page. I am going to link you up being as this page is just you. I agree with the 5th grade teacher definition of Haiku which is also agreed with on whatever dictionary the person who maintains the Monday Haiku page has in the description. I insist on following those rules or calling it free-verse. I don't expect anyone else too, just rules for myself. Yours is beautiful, esp with the picture to go with it. I like seeing all my friends on your sidebar of links. We have about 50% in common

Very Cool (pardon the bland adjectival modifiers).

Very beautiful. Your blog reminds me of my friend Polona's blog. Very nice indeed.
