the light’s sufficient
although the sun’s still rising
— cresting the mountain

    Hey there, well done on your inclusion. I particularly like the one about the tree and the monkey. I mean, it’s sort-of orchestral. Does the monkey ‘animate’ the tree (that’s almost a pun) or is the tree, baton-like, animating the monkey?

    Petru! Congratulations!@!! Cresting the mountain……for some reason, this brought me to tears. The haiku is lovely, and the sentiment is deep. I agree with Claudia….a sense of promise, and to me….hope. That has been in short supply lately here. Thank you, Petru.

    Beautiful images (both) and congratulations! (K)

  5. Congratulations. And I love this. A sense of possibilities.

    Wonderful. I don’t belong to any poetic societies.
    Though many years ago I did get an honorable mention for a rather lengthy haiku series. 🙂

    Continued success!

    • It’s all it is Jules, an honourable mention. It’s just the Dialogue pages where anyone can take part without actually being one of the luminaries! It’s great, but not that great either! Give it a try, the link is on the post.

  7. Beautiful. That’s fantastic! Congratulations.

  8. Reblogged this on Frank J. Tassone and commented:
