A Poem For Bec

Today, Bec, the sweet girl, dedicated a Leunig poem to me on her Monday Verse. I thought I'd like to dedicate one back. A Japanese Haiku by Basho

Orchid breathing

incense into

butterfly wings.

Thanks Bec!

Oh, thank-you so much. I love this haiku. It has put a big fat smile on my face. I actually have an orchid blooming away in the garden at the moment, and it brightens my day every time I see it's bright yellowness peeking out from behind all the green. And now when I look at it I will also think of this poem too. Double-happiness!!! Thank-you!

Good poem, and striking image. Is this some of your paper?

(and yes, I am just changing 'into' crocs for the season. With 3 pair, I'm pretty well set, tho the newer sandals are tempting...)
