    I like the complexity of this one.


  2. Do you think your urging will keep the willow from weeping?

    without her fronds, it’s more difficult to weep, I guess…


  4. A wonderful haiku, as Cathy already said that complexity is the true strength of this haiku. If you don’t mind I would like to use this one in one of our upcoming Tan Renga Challenges.
