For a while the stone
resting in the riverbed
holds the evening light.

    A perfect moment – and your haiku has a great classical feel, too.
    Very nicely done 🙂

  3. Superb. Again, at your best

    • Thanks. I worked on this all day, and still wasn’t satisfied when I published it, but I just couldn’t do any more with it. Your affirmative comment and others make me realize once again that (to paraphrase someone else—Abraham Lincoln, I think) a writer who has himself as an editor (or critic) has a fool for a client! 😉

    Absolutely awesome! My mind’s eye is there. About your dissatisfaction…SARK said “when writing, ignore the inner critic shouting about content, form, and grammar”. You have obviously accomplished this because you always give us just what you see.
