! ! Haiku-Ukiah - Poem by Michael Shepherd

where tears meet laughter
how elusive is the source
whence a smile melts tears


whence a smile melts tears
how elusive is the source
where tears meet laughter

[haiku-ukiah is a 'mirror-poem' which offers two ways of attaching thought to image - a difficult verse-form to work with, but 'Japanese' in mood]
