  2. A lot to think about in this one, and a lot to enjoy. I identify with the sound of the distant train signifying loneliness. I think it is because we don't hear that far off train when we are with others. But, when alone, we hear it. Lonliness!

  8. Ayaz, thank you for once again sharing your amazing talent in these well written Haiku . I loved them all your especially widowed neighbor. Perhaps that is because gospel music sooths my weary soul at times too.
