  1. ‘Petal by petal’ nice line, very nice and simple as haiku is meant to be. Thank you Mark for sharing.

    This is wonderful. I read some of your other haiku poems too. Each one tells an entire story and stirs the imagination in just three lines. I love short poetry, and flash fiction. Nice to meet you. I’m bookmarking!

  3. poignant imagery and lovely words

    Yes… your whispers fill my cup… thank you Mark.

    Very nicely created — I like the imagery of the first two lines … and the ending with green table (which has a layered, multi-meaning effect).
    Tea Flowers and Tea Blossoms
