  7. Moon beckons me.. makes me feel so good.. anything written on Moon is so comforting..either for Moon or those who feel jealous of its existence.. but Moon is most written about and for me thought about.. thanks..

  8. Beautiful photo. Loved your haiku too.

    All the best, Boonie

  9. Just awesome, the whole thing. I'm up early as usual and when I saw the cranes, a beautiful perfect memory was released to me. In Summerspast, I'd attend ceremony up North. The cranes were the harbingers of morning every day. Their song is what I heard. I watched their shadowy image low on the horizon, hiding in the tree line, as sun rose over the plains. My God I love this!
    I have been to the Valentine Wildlife Refuge in Nebraska many times and have seen them gather coming to and from migration. An awesome sight in person.
    Thanks very much. Your haiku stands alone and mimics the peace of nature.

    Peace to all
