    Oh these are lush whispers… with a twinge of loss… my mother can only speak to me via whispers from heaven’s vault… so this really hit me in my heart.

    Extremely well crafted too.

    Excellent ending lines to the haiku of Onitsura. It almost always seems awkward when extra lines are added to a perfect haiku but in your case, your addition was lovely and added a great deal of meaning.

    “Empty vault of heaven”…hmm…mysterious and beautiful haiku. You can’t much argue with the “way it is.” Thanks for adding your voice to dVerse, Petru!
