    I love haikus but they're not easy. The first one is one of the best I've ever read. (Report) Reply

    Trees shedding their leaves and leaving a carpet under the trees.
    Very soothing and mellowed write. Rain falling and sometimes the sun
    takes a peek. Loved this. (Report) Reply

    the first one i love, the second one i don't understand (what does into my progress mean? ?) , and the third one i don't care for but at least i might understand what you mean (is a car driving down a highway, passing lots of big trucks which shade the car with each passing?) . thanks for sharing. the first one made up for the others.

    Haiku-do of yours is so masterly: vivid, alive, metaphorical. I enjoy it – and follow your 'do'.) (Report) Reply

    Fall changes entire landscapes.
    Rain’s a part of life that we must deal with.
    And “let the truckers have their day.”
    I enjoyed your haiku very much. Good job. (Report) Reply
