memories...By Gert W. Knop--Germany

Edinburgh in mist
Raindrops like dew

  1. I have a weakness for haiku, and this is lovely

  2. Hi, Gert, I have enjoyed your gentle and sweet memory in this brief but powerful word painting. So much said here, in these 3 lines of only 14 syllables. To me, it is "almost" true and original Haiku, but yet, it is not. Yet, it is an original form creation by you, which is totally clever and a joy to read! Sheri

  3. Very nice, Gert. Thank you for sharing and continued blessings!
